2015 saw the London Korean Film Festival reach its 10th active year. As its title suggests, the season decided to celebrate this anniversary with a tribute to 10 prominent Korean directors. Rather than screening the well-established works of these auteurs - the likes of which included Im Kwon-taek and Lee Chang-dong - the season was instead programmed to celebrate their earlier works, some lesser-known titles of which had never before been shown in the UK.
In addition to this, the programme grew in exciting new ways. One addition was Korean Film Nights Amplified, a series of talks delivered by academics and critics before screenings to better contextualise the films, the history and the industry which surround them. The other of these was Korean Cinema Echoes where the Korean Cultural Centre UK brought its screenings once a month to SOAS University of London and the Royal College of Art, in order to reach more audiences.
