2009/06/26 Source

This year's New York Asian Film Festival (NYAFF) invites seven Korean features and 10 Korean shorts to its 8th edition, running June 19 July 5 in Manhattan. Of the seven features, four are North American premieres: Ryoo Seung-wan's "Dachimawa Lee", Kim Ki-duk's "Dream", Jang Hoon's "Rough Cut", and Min Gyoo-dong's "Antique".

The remaining three features are New York premieres and include Rotterdam Tiger winner "Breathless" by Yang Ik-june, "Go Go 70s" by Choi Ho and "Crush and Blush" by Lee Kyoung-mi. From the latter film, award-winning actress Gong Hyo-jin will be a guest at NYAFF. She and actor So Ji-sub ("Rough Cut") will be presented with the Inaugural Rising Star Asia Awards, which will take place on the 24 of June.

In the short film category, director Lee Su-Jin is invited for the screening of his short film "Enemy's Apple". The program highlights the best Korean short films from the previous year's edition of the Mise-en-Scene's Short Film Festival in Seoul. NYAFF will screen 53 feature films from Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Indonesia, and Malaysia.
