Shocking news arrived early this month. The owners of our beloved local restaurant Komian have announced that they will close down the restaurant and their pickles shops at the end of May, due to a long-term business slump and the influence of the recent COVID-19 pandemic. For nearly three decades, the restaurant was YIDFF’s late night gathering place called Komian Club, beloved by all festival participants and guests. The renovated traditional storehouse was a symbolic keystone representing YIDFF’s openness and enthusiasm for cinema for long years. It will be missed a lot.
