The London East Asia Film Festival (LEAFF), the capital’s most celebrated champion of East Asian cinema and culture, opens its fourth year on the 24th October at Odeon Leicester Square with the European premiere of EXIT, the latest disaster action comedy from Korean director Lee Sang-geun, and runs until 3rd November.
This year’s programme includes the cinematic offerings of 11 countries - China, Japan, South Korea, North Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand and Malaysia and focuses on crisis, chaos and survival. Through the lens and unique perspectives of East Asian filmmakers, LEAFF offers compelling insight into not only the future of those in East Asia but in London, with vital and thought-provoking dialogues being opened up around subjects such as youth, human interaction, development, cultural and social issues.
LEAFF will screen at 4 international premieres, 17 European premieres and 22 UK premieres, which will take place at selected venues, including Odeon Leicester Square, Odeon Covent Garden, Bertha Dochouse, London’s Cinema Museum and Deptford Cinema
