Home is where your camera is
“Waygukin” is the Korean word for foreigner. I’d prefer the word “expat.” 1.5 million foreigners live in South Korea. Nearly half are Chinese, 9.3% of those are American, while many Japanese, Thai, and Vietnamese call Korea “home” as well. Either way we’re here to stay… and often bored and drinking. So why not a festival?
Korea International Expat Film Festival, or KIXFF, is the only expat film festival on Earth. KIXFF is for low-budget independent filmmakers focusing on the expat film movement. Nearly 50 films in three days. Telling stories without borders. 2015 was the inaugural year for KIXFF.
