Korean American Film Festival New York: Calling All Filmmakers

October 22, 2008

Here's information on the festival and the submission process that was sent my way via Jong Lee who co-organizes the event:

KAFFNY is scheduled for February

KAFFNY is a one-day New York showcase screening works by
emerging and established Korean filmmakers and performers. We are the event that
brought you Benson Lee's "Planet B-Boy," Juwan Chung's "Baby," and short works
by Dennis Lee and Randall Park.

5.8 million people of ethnic Korean
descent have immigrated from Korea to all parts of the world. "Are there new,
emerging filmmakers amongst those millions of the Korean Diaspora?," we asked
ourselves. There must be. So, new to KAFFNY 2009, we want to show our New York
audience films that express the points of view of filmmakers / performers of
ethnic Korean descent from around the world - to see what and how they see the
world around them.


We are
now accepting short film submissions from filmmakers / performers of ethnic
Korean descent, of any nationality. We welcome all genres: narrative, animation,
music video, documentary, experimental etc.

There is no entry fee. The
submission deadline is November 30. Please send DVD submissions, NTSC Region 0
or 1, to the address below:

Suite 401
