The Korean Film Festival returns to Australia (KOFFIA) this year for its 7th edition – bigger and better than ever! Over the course of two months, the Festival will make its rounds in 6 different cities and bring an absolutely stellar list of award-winning Korean films to film buffs and lovers of the Korean culture country-wide. From gripping blockbusters, indie arthouse delights to light-hearted romantic comedies, there is definitely something in the lineup for everyone 🙂
Proudly presented by the Korean Cultural Centre Australia and Samsung and partners Event Cinemas and Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI), the Festival hopes to present a new taste in film. This year’s theme is unique – ‘Gujeolpan’, a traditional Korean dish that combines 9 delicacies to create 1 delicious, wholesome flavour. This represents how KOFFIA will celebrate the meeting of diverse film genres to present the delicacy that is Korean cinema.
Featuring a complement of 20 features and 4 guest visit sessions, the festival will see over 80 screenings take place across Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane, Perth, Melbourne and Adelaide. The exciting list of films is as follows:
