Event report

By Creators’ Lounge staff Shoya Ichimura


On May 1st, an art party was held to kick off the event of TKFF (Toronto Korean Film Festival), that will be held between May 26 to May 31st. There were many active Toronto artsits of various genres that participated in this event in the expectations of a successful lauch of this years TKFF. I was able to see upclose the works of participating artists along with being entertained by live performances of bands and live painting.

From Creators’ Lounge, 5 artists participated in the event. Using back, red and grey pens with a hint of white as painting tools was artist Dan. Works of miniature arts made from origami was artist Mui-Ling. Live performances that excited the audience were presented by Ken, ILL Percent and DJ KAMI. Ken played his electric guitar while images were projected. ILL Percent is a rapper who will release his new album on May 30. DJ KAMI has created an original style that remixed J-Pop and K-Pop together.

It is the first time in 4 years that TKFF has lauched an Art Party, in hopes that this parties energy will bring forth a bright future to TKFF. Not only just film, but this will definitely put a light on the arts scene in Toronto as well.








5月26日から5月31日に行われるTKFF(Toronto Korean Film Festival)のキックオフイベントとなるArt partyが5月1日に行われた。このイベントにはトロントで活動している様々なジャンルのアーティストが参加し、TKFFの成功を期待させてくれるような素晴らしいパーティーだった。参加アーティストが出展している作品を間近で見ることができた。またライブペインティングやバンドによる演奏などのライブパフォーマンスも行われ観客楽しませてくれた。

Creaters’ Loungeからはブラック、レッド、グレーのペンを少量のホワイトとともに絵を描くDan、小さい折り紙で作品を作るMui-lingが作品を出展し注目を浴びていた。ライブパフォーマンスではプロジェクターで映像を写しながらギターを演奏するKen、5月30日にニューアルバムをリリースするラッパーILL Percent、日本と韓国の音楽を合わせた独自のスタイル確立しているDJ KAMIによるプレイで会場を沸かせた。

TKFF開催4年目にはじまったArt party、このエネルギーは今後のTKFFに繋がっていくだろう。映画だけでなく、トロントのアートシーンを盛り上げていくに違いない。
