It is that time of year again. The 10th Pyongyang International Film Propaganda Festival kicks off today.

Personally, I prefer the old name for the festival:

The Pyongyang Film Festival of the Non-aligned and Other Developing Countries (PFFNODC for short)

The theme of this year’s festival is “Peace, Independence and Friendship”.

Interestingly the first “Western Film” to have ever been shown at the festival was “Bend it like Beckham” two years ago.
