If 2012 was the year Korean pop music conquered the world with “Gangnam Style,” 2013 is shaping up to be the year that Korean filmmakers make their mark on Hollywood. Kim Jee-woon (The Good, the Bad, the Weird) already brought us Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Last Stand. Later this year, Bong Joon-ho (The Host) releases his highly anticipated sci-fi adventure Snowpiercer. The Korean Film Festival DC is honored to host the local premiere of Park Chan-wook’s American debut feature Stoker, followed by a retrospective of his impressive body of work.
This year’s Korean Film Festival DC features a new venue, the Angelika Film Center, and a new sponsor, the Korean Cultural Center DC, Embassy of the Republic of Korea. We look forward to working with these partners to bring treasures of Korean cinema to the Washington area for years to come.
