After walking briefly through the Pride Parade crowds and shooting some neat videos of vogueing drag queens, I went to the IFC’s Korean Mise-En-Scene Genres Film Festival (MGFF) short film throwdown Sunday afternoon (Program 1 of 3) and was really inspired.
MISE-EN-SCENE’s GENRE FILM FESTIVAL SHORT FILM THROWDOWN!
Korea’s greatest directors (PARK Chan-wook, RYU Seung-wan, E. J-Yong and more) have teamed up to curate the Mise-en-Scene’s Genre Film Festival (MGFF) where they pick the best comedy, horror, action, sci-fi and romance short films and now they’re bringing the best of the fest to New York City.
The two feature length films I am most excited about seeing this week are:
* Big Bang Love (Takashi Miike)
THU JUNE 28 IFC 7PM, THU JULY 5TH JAPAN SOCIETY 6:45PM
* I’m a Cyborg, but That’s OK (PARK Chan-wook)
SAT JUNE 30 IFC 8:15PM (last screening for festival)
PARK Chan-wook directed two of my favorite films: Old Boy and Lady Vengeance.
There is also a Pakistani exploitation zombie movie, some great love stories, and much more.
