Back in the city itself after running a primarily online edition last year, the London Korean Film Festival will open with Ryoo Seung-wan's true life thriller Escape From Mogadishu. It features a bumper line-up with some of the best Korean films of the past year alongside skilfully restored classics like Kim Ki-young's Woman Of Fire, with a special section on the work of female directors plus an impressive selection of shorts.

The festival runs from 4 to 19 November.
