Eighth annual Kicking + Screening Soccer Film Festival kicks off in New York
The eighth annual Kicking + Screening Soccer Film Festival begins in New York City Tuesday night, kicking off a four-night celebration of soccer culture featuring movies that cover a wide range on the sport's spectrum.
The festival begins with a featured look at the Panini sticker collecting craze that sweeps fans around each World Cup, with director Corinna Hackenbroch's "Sticker: Collecting Fever" (the trailer can be watched in the video above). K+S 2016 continues Wednesday with "Club Frontera," director Chris Cashman's in-depth look at Club Tijuana's rise in Liga MX and its impact on both sides of the USA and Mexico border.
Features on Thursday and Friday, respectively, include "Uno: La histordia de un gol," a story of El Salvador's 1982 World Cup team, and "Sommeren '92," about Denmark being granted a late place at Euro 1992 following Yugoslavia's disqualification and going on to win the competition.
