London Korean Film Festival 2015 – the detailed schedule


Here’s the complete schedule for the 2015 edition of the London Korean Film Festival. Details are correct at time of going to press, but experience indicates that there might be some last minute changes. Always check the official website,, for up-to-date details.

I know I’m a bit of a grumbler, but this year I think the KCC has done a really good job in laying out the schedule. Last year I remember cursing that there were so many screening clashes. This year, although there’s about the same number of movies as last year and yes, there are still some clashes, somehow the clashes don’t seem to matter: the art-house fans can select their stream, and those who prefer the mainstream blockbusters can choose theirs.

This is going to be a good year.
