Film Hype: New York Asian Film Festival Snags Warped Forest

The New York Asian Film Festival just released it's 2013 schedule and they actually got the North American Premiere of The Warped Forest the sequel to Funky Forest. They're also getting the bizarre Hentai Kamen: Forbidden Superhero North American Premiere. For those who love contemporary Japanese cinema this is a blow to LA's honor of getting the newest cult favorites and odd films from Japan. However, I'm just glad to see Warped Forest back in America, it was made in 2011 and the closes it's been on US soil was at Fantastic Fest a year ago. I hope it makes it's was to LA soon. Finished in 2011 there is still no distribution of the film to the consumer market.
