The 6th Annual Korean American Film Festival New York (KAFFNY)

Printer-friendly version
Our friends at KAFFNY (Korean American Film Festival New York) will be holding their annual festival at the Anthology Film Archives this week from June 5-10.
Marking its sixth run this year, KAFFNY promises a “bold” line-up this year with 9 features, 6 premieres, and over 20 short films. Among the films featured are: Dirty Hands: The Art and Crimes of David Choe, Should’ve Kissed, Magic and Loss, and Dol, a short film by Andrew Ahn, which we wrote about earlier this year. The festival will also be commemorating the 20th anniversary of the L.A. Riots with shorts and films told in the voice of the second-generation Korean Americans. KAFFNY’s L.A. Riots 20th Anniversary Program will be free and open to the public on Sunday, June 10.
Susie Lim, the festival’s director says that “[t]he 6th annual KAFFNY celebrates the transformative power of independent visions and character-driven stories, unafraid of crossing seemingly fixed boundaries of culture, nation and identity.”
