Melbourne screening scheduled in September
Presenting the many faces of Korean cinema! Love Korean movies, culture and food? Don’t miss the 4th KOFFIA Korean Film Festival which takes place across Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne from Aug 14 – Sept 11. The festival will showcase the very best of Hallyuwood and bring to light the talented filmmakers, actors and actresses who make up the exciting new wave of Korean cinema, as we aim to bridge the connection between Korea and Australia.
KOFFIA 2013 will see 50 screenings and in a month you will see drama, romance, comedy, action and more! The programe includes Kim Ki-duk’s Venice Golden Lion winning Pieta, Kim Ji-hoon’s latest disaster flick The Tower, and some of the biggest Korean blockbusters in history–The Thieves and A Werewolf Boy. A notion for diversity will be represented through documentaries, independent films and shorts, including the K-pop doco 9 Muses of Star Empire and Kim Dong-ho’s Jury. KOFFIA is not only about films but we also promise to bring you a unique Korean cultural experience with industry forums, gala receptions, cultural activities and so much more!
With almost 10,000 people attending to date in its short history, and we believe this expansion will see the next evolutionary step in the life of the festival. It’s time to say Annyeong to Korean film! KOFFIA is organised by the Korean Cultural Office Australia. For details about session times and how to buy tickets, visit our website www.koffia.com.au
