The London Korean Film Festival (LKFF) is the UK’s leading showcase of Korean cinema, and one of the largest festivals dedicated to a national cinema in the world. The festival has introduced premiere screenings of major blockbusters to UK cinema screens while also incorporating the most engaging Indie hits, Documentary, Animation, Shorts, Classics and more within its diverse programme. Now in its groundbreaking 14th edition, LKFF celebrates 100 years of rich and vibrant national films in its special focus: A Century of Korean Cinema.

Building upon Watershed's tradition of screening films on 35mm, LKFF presents Korean classic The Flower in Hell from prolific director Shin Sang-ok. Also showing is Grass from master Hong Sangsoo, who has made a valuable contribution to the development of independent Korean cinema. From one of the oldest to one of the newest films in our lineup, both occupy a significant place in the canon of Korean cinematic history.
