Calling all regular and new attendees of the London Korean Film Festival…
Those who HAVE attended the physical festival before will know that there is always a black and white full run-down of the screenings available – chronologically: dates; times; venues; special accompanying events/Q & As etc etc… This, and certainly for the more recent years, has been available as a PDF and/or physical flyer and available on all good websites, such as this one… wink wink!
That may be the case this year, but we at MMM have found some extra special information regarding this year’s LKFF which we simply must share with you.
Firstly, a somewhat spruced up KoreanFilm.co.uk website has a nice display or layout about it. And with this comes a few menus of interest…
Now, some of these, such as Programme News and Strands will perhaps be familiar. There are though, a couple of features to other menus or indeed simply new menus altogether – and no doubt owed in part to the fact that this year’s festival is taking place online (for the first time ever) and, all being well, in cinemas.
Free Screenings – this menu or tab shows exactly that:
Yes. Films which can be seen for FREE and online… and this even includes the film in which Bong Joon-ho is seen starring in, “Some Light” (part of the Bong Joon-ho Shorts strand)!
It’s worth noting that any Online ones are no more than £2.99 to view (99p for shorts).
In Cinemas – self-explanatory, I hope…
The other menu/tab is Screening Schedule, which takes you to – yes, you’ve guessed it – the SCHEDULE, but not in the format posted in this article of ours, nor in the black & white version mentioned above. No, this is a full colour PLANNER [some (I’m thinking of Glastonbury Festival) would call it something like a ‘Clashfinder’!] which, I have to say is superb and I’m sure Mr G over at LondonKoreanLinks.net will appreciate this very much, as he’s often [seemingly] painstakingly put one together for this festival and indeed other festivals which screenings may clash with.
Feel free to check out the menus yourself and even download the Schedule/Planner but for convenience we’re including it below!
Enjoy and… Stay safe, stay well and stay in support of Korean cinema, the Korean Cultural Centre, London (KCCUK – the organisers of this annual event, plus “Korean Film Nights” & related seasons) and of course the LKFF itself!
Again, the link to these downloadable schedules can be found via KoreanFilm.co.uk …
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE MOST UP-TO-DATE VERSION CAN BE FOUND ON THAT WEBSITE – THERE HAVE BEEN A FEW CHANGES SINCE WE ‘WENT TO PRINT’ WITH THIS ARTICLE.
