This year's London Korean Film Festival is hosting a number of Teaser Screenings at Sheffield Showroom and Edinburgh Filmhouse ahead of the event this autumn.

There are three films showing as part of the autumn festival Teaser programme - which will also take place in London's Genesis and Curzon cinemas - Hong Eui-jeong's Voice Of Silence, Hong Won-chan's Deliver Us From Evil and actor/director Lee Jong-pil's Samjin Company English Class.

Meanwhile, this year's Korean Film Nights programme, which is currently underway, is exploring the work of four pioneering female directors working during the last 100 years of Korean filmmaking, in particular spotlighting films by directors who started working before feminist discussion began in Korea in the 1990s. The films can be viewed for free on the Korean Cultural Centre YouTube channel, with a film released for free every fortnight. Currently, films including My Daughter Rescued From The Swamp and Rub Love are available.

Additional older Korean films can be viewed on the Classic Korean YouTube channel, including The Widow.
