UK-Korea Creative Industries Forum


On behalf of the UK Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport and the Republic of Korea Minister for Culture, Sport and Tourism, we are delighted to invite you to attend the second UK-Korea Creative Industries Forum at the British Film Institute’s Southbank Centre.

The Forum
The UK-Korea Creative Industries Forum is a one-day event hosted by the UK and Korean Governments to celebrate and develop the strong and growing links between our creative industries. The Forum will consist of showcases, speeches, panel discussions and networking sessions, and will be followed by an evening reception to mark the start of the 10th London Korean Film Festival. The event will be led by Rt Hon John Whittingdale OBE MP from the UK Department for Culture, Media and Sport and Minister Kim Jong-deok from the Korean Ministry of Culture, Sport and Tourism.

Pact/KIPA Memorandum of Understanding (MOU)
During the Forum, the ministers will witness the signing ceremony of an MOU between Pact and its counterpart in South Korea, the Korea Independent Productions Association (KIPA).

The MOU will form part of an international exchange strategy to help independent production companies collaborate on productions across all genres.

Pact CEO John McVay will sign the MOU in London whilst, in Seoul, Head of International Development Dawn McCarthy-Simpson will make the announcement during her keynote address at the Docs Port Incheon Festival.

Speaking about the MOU, Dawn McCarthy-Simpson said ‘we have worked closely with both Korea Creative Content Agency (KOCCA), the governing agency for creative industries in South Korea, and KIPA for several years. Our work has already seen successful co-productions and the MOU is to signify our commitment to a long term strategy.’
