The University of Central Lancashire (UCLan), Preston, UK, is delighted to host the 8th Korean Screen Cultures Conference supported by the Korea Foundation. The KSCC is a unique forum for the exchange of new perspectives on Korean screen cultures. The KSCC brings researchers from multiple disciplines together, and has therefore helped forge a diverse and international community of Korean Screen Cultures scholars. This year’s event includes fifteen panels on diverse topics in Korean Screen Cultures, incuding: North Korean Cinemas, K-Pop Music Videos, Korean ‘Mukbang’ eating videos, Film Festivals, History and Memory, Postcolonial Korean Cinema, Japanese/Korean Screen Relations, Korean Horror FIlm, Queer Korean Film, Space and Environment, and many more. The festival opens on Wednesday 5th June at 5:30 pm with a screening of Snowy Road and a Q&A with director Na Jeong Lee. It also features a keynote by Prof. Sangjoon Lee of Nanyang University, Singapore.
