5:30 – 6:00 PM: Reception
6:30 – 8:30 PM: Film Screenings & Q&A with directors Juhui Kwon and Nick Neon
Nick Neon is an award-winning Korean American filmmaker & actor. He is best known for his short films following Jimmy Park, a 20something and lost gay man struggling with Identity. Neon is a lover of Jurassic Park, vegan ice cream & desert skies before dawn.

Juhui Kwon is an independent writer-director based in NYC, hailing from South Korea. Her early films have stemmed from a diaspora theme and essay film genre. After screening her earliest short film Moonrise, she was contacted by Kino Lorber Inc., an arthouse film distributor, and was under consideration for distribution. This was one of the inspirations that propelled Juhui to pursue an M.F.A in film writing & directing and gain a broader and deeper perspective. She studied under the guidance of the late Chantal Akerman, with whom Juhui shared her love for French New Wave cinema.
