Korean American fest comes to L.A.

Festival spent six years in Gotham

After six years in Gotham, the Korean American Film Festival is branching out to Los Angeles with its inaugural fest set to unspool Aug. 9-11 at the Korean Cultural Center on the Miracle Mile.

A newly formed affiliate of the Korean American Film Festival New York, the noncompetitive Los Angeles fest features four feature-length films, including 2010’s “Magic and Loss,” plus 13 short films in both narrative and documentary formats. A centerpiece of the fest is a program of five works, ranging from a musicvideo to a 81-minute feature, that look at Korean-American viewpoints on the L.A. riots.

“The 20th anniversary of the Los Angeles civil unrest represents a singular chance to use cinema for cultural discussion and education, engaging filmmakers and audiences to look back at history, examine the present and move boldly into the future,” said Dave Kim, founder and exec director of the New York and L.A. fests.
