NORTH KOREAN HUMAN RIGHTS FILM FESTIVAL ANNOUNCES 2013 DATES AND VENUE
TORONTO - On the heels of its first year of operation, the North Korean Human Rights Film Festival (NKHRFF) announces that its second film festival will take place from October 25 to 27, 2013. NKHRFF’s first film festival featuring the North American premiere of a South Korean film, Winter Butterfly, successfully launched on July 6 this year, and the 3 day film festival and surrounding events were attended by nearly 1000 attendees including multiple filmmakers. On September 14, 2012, NKHRFF presented the world premiere of a South Korean film, 48M, at the United Nations Human Rights Council meeting held in Geneva, Switzerland.
NKHRFF is also excited to announce that next year’s edition of its annual film festival will be hosted at the TIFF Bell Lightbox, a state of the art facility located in downtown Toronto. “We are incredibly honoured to have our second festival take place at the TIFF Bell Lightbox,” said Gilad Cohen, Founder and Director of NKHRFF. “A facility like this will definitely assist us in our mission of raising awareness of North Korean human rights abuses to a much larger audience.”
NKHRFF is a non-for-profit organization whose mission is to raise awareness of North Korean human rights abuses through the arts. As the only organization of its kind in North America, NKHRFF is quickly emerging as a unique organization seeking to educate the public on North Korea in an unconventional way. NKHRFF was founded in 2012 in Toronto.
