KCCLA is holding a K-Cinema and Entertainment Symposium on Thursday, Oct. 20, at 6 p.m. in KCCLA’s Ari Hall.
KCCLA invited industry expert Angela Killoren and director Kim Jong-man for lectures and networking events. The event is intended for local professionals interested in Korean cinema and K-content.
Killoren will discuss the status of K-content and Hallyu in the United States, the role and performance of K-content, specific factors that are considered when introducing Korean films to the U.S. market and the direction of sustainable Hallyu and K-content. Kim will discuss Hollywood’s film production process, his experiences as a local producer of K-content, particularly short films, and professional tips on pitching methods in Hollywood.
The event is sponsored by the Korean American Museum, which has supported Korean culture and art for the past 20 years.
“Korean films, dramas and entertainment are in the spotlight in the U.S. recently, and K-content such as ‘Parasite’ and ‘Squid Game’ has won Oscars and Emmy Awards,” KCCLA Director Sangwon Jung said. “We planned a valuable event to expand the Korean Wave and find sustainable Hallyu.”
KCCLA is located at 5505 Wilshire Blvd. For information, visit kccla.org.
