KAFE – Korean Association of Film Education

 

A Quiet Outing

 

Total Run Time: 64 minutes

KAFE (Korean Association of Film Education) started out quietly. KAFE is a meeting of Korean film professors. They teach movies to students at universities and even make movies themselves. The spirit of experimenting with movies is necessary for both students and professors and this is the reason KAFE connected with KLEX festival for the second time. KAFE members hope to establish friendship and gain new insights into film art and its potential through witnessing the experimental spirit of KLEX. We are teachers but at the same time also ‘students’ in the pursuit of film art.
