Korean American Film Festival New York: Call For Film Submissions

Monday, October 20, 2008

Got this sent to me from Jong Lee who co-organizes the Korean American Film Festival New York which is making a call for submissions up until November 30th:

KAFFNY is scheduled for February 2009!

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:

c/o Barrel
23 W 36th Street, Suite 401
New York, NY 10018

KAFFNY is co-sponsored by New York University Tisch School of the Arts and The Korea Times.
So what are you waiting for? Get on out and show your film at KAFFNY.
