KOFFIA – Korean Film Festival – Melbourne

The Korean Film Festival begins Saturday 10th Sept and runs until Tuesday 13th Sept. The festival is at ACMI in Federation Square.

For the opening night, the blockbuster film ‘The Man from Nowhere’ starring Won Bin will be showing. This film was Korea’s highest grossing film in 2010; it is a great choice for opening night. I reviewed this film earlier this year – if you’re a fan of action, drama, suspense you should go see this film. Click here to read my full review.

Other films showing:
- A Barefoot Dream
- Bunt
- JSA: Joint Security Area
- The Show Must Go On
- Secret Reunion
- Earth’s Women
- Shim’s Family

On Sunday there is a special Industry Forum that you can attend for free. Here, you can listen to industry experts discuss Korean films. Some experts include:
- Dr Adrian Martin, Monash University
- Christian Were (Madman Entertainment)
- Al Cossar (MIFF, Melbourne International Film Festival)

If you have trouble deciding which film to watch, I definitely recommend ‘The Man From Nowhere’.

Check out this great event this weekend. For more details, visit the KOFFIA website
