KAFE (Korea Association of Film Education) International Screening
Curated by Jonghan Choi, Experimental Filmmaker and Researcher
KAFE is an academic society consists of film professors and lecturers. ‘Begin Again’ is a screening programme with works of KAFE members teaching at the University in South Korea. Although many professors of KAFE devote most of their times as full-time teachers and as researchers, they never abandon the ‘artist’ in them. In ‘Begin Again’, you will see the works from experimental filmmaker, screenwriter, video artist, commercial film director, film critic, film theorist and cinematographer. I believe this is a special time for the KAFE members to share their films in KLEX. Now, we ‘Begin Again’!
