Independent film “Ten Months” has been invited to compete at the Uncaged section of the 20th New York Asian Film Festival (Nyaff) which kicked-off today and will run simultaneously both online and offline until Aug. 22.  
 
It is the only Korean film to screen in the competitive section. It revolves 29-year-old game developer Mi-rae after she realizes she’s 11-weeks pregnant.  
 
Other Korean films, such as director Ryu Seung-wan’s “Escape from Mogadishu” and disaster comedy “Sinkhole” have been selected as opening and closing films for the festival while films like director Lee Joon-ik’s black-and-white film “The Book of Fish’ (2021), “Samjin Company English Class” (2020), and upcoming films “Snowball” and "Spiritwalker" have also been invited to screen.  
 
Last year, director Yoon Dan-bi’s “Moving On” won the Uncaged Award for Best Feature Film.  
 
“Ten Months” is scheduled to be released in local theaters sometime later this year.
