Memories of a Murder, one of the many titles at the fest.
The Korean Film Festival in Los Angeles starts today and continues through Sunday night, featuring a number of great Korean shorts and feature films as well as panels and workshops. The Korean Film Festival in Los Angeles has some serious things working against it. Its closing night comes during the Oscars and frankly most people are too focused on the prestigious awards ceremony right now to take notice of other film events around Los Angeles. That being said, the fest has a number of movies from different genres and has relatively inexpensive ticket prices (as low as $8 online). For fans of Korean films, which let's face it are pretty awesome, seeing a film or two is a great way to spend the weekend. Movies will be screened at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, Laemmle Music Hall in Beverly Hills, AFI Conservatory, and at the Korean Cultural Center.
