Since 2007

KAFFNY
CINEMA

 

Whether presenting works by documentary filmmaker Dai Sil Kim-Gibson, DJ Spooky’s live musical re-score of the 1956 seminal classic Korean film, “Madame Freedom,” pioneer video art by Nam June Paik, multi-faceted perspectives on the 1992 Los Angeles Riots, or a three-wall gallery projection dance party for a music film set to the entirety of Girl Talk’s definitive mashup album, KAFFNY moves across platforms to bring present the richest exhibition of the hidden intersections of global culture.

Originally founded in 2006 as the Korean American Film Festival New York, our festival venues include: Wythe Hotel Cinema, Village East Cinemas, TheTimesCenter, SVA Theatre, Chelsea Clearview Cinemas, Skirball Center at NYU, Anthology Film Archives, as well as gallery and outdoor public spaces throughout New York City. Our partners include: Ford Foundation (Good Neighbor Committee), Korean American Community Foundation, The Korea Society, CUNY Asian American/American Research Institute, Korean Association of New York Artists, Korea Times, The Korean Channel. KAFFNY is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Surprising and diverse in its selections, the sixth annual edition of this festival focuses on a variety of movies that Korean or Korean-American filmmakers have had a hand in. There are no geographical or thematic boundaries, so that can mean almost anything and anywhere. — Steve Dollar, WSJ (2012)
