The Korean Film Festival in Australia known as KOFFIA returns this year again for its ninth year this August and September.
KOFFIA will hit in Sydney (9-18 August), Brisbane(15-16 August), Melbourne (6-13 September) and Canberra (21-23), bringing Korea’s hottest new films to audiences down under.
“2018 is already shaping up to be another incredible year for the Korean Film Festival in Australia,” says KOFFIA Director David Park.
“Audiences will dive into a total 23 days of cinematic splendour, both world class features and fascinating documentaries plucked straight from Korea’s booming film industry – Hallyuwood!”
There’s always a great selection of indie films, blockbusters, and rom-coms, and a great chance to catch-up on what’s happening in the Korea film industry.
There’s already been a number of Korean films released to cinemas in Australia this year, but it’s a fraction of the amazing output released from the industry every year.
2018 KOFFIA screening dates and locations:
- Sydney: AUG 9 – 18 | Dendy Opera Quays
- Brisbane: August 15 – 16 | Elizabeth Picture Theatre
- Melbourne: September 6 – 13 | Australian Centre for the Moving Image
- Canberra: September 21 – 23 | Palace Electric Cinema
