Celebrating 10 years of screening the very best in Korean cinema Down Under, The Korean Film Festival in Australia returns in 2019 a line-up of exquisite new Korean films, from across all genres.

Taking place in Sydney (22-31 August), Canberra (22-25 August), Brisbane (5-8 September) and Melbourne (5-12 September), the Festival’s program features a whopping 22 films, 13 of which are Australian premieres.

Presented by the Korean Cultural Centre Australia, KOFFIA showcases the very best of Korean culture through film. From big-budget blockbusters to intimate art house flicks, the Festival presents a packed program of world-class cinema, plucked straight out of Korea’s booming film industry – Hallyuwood.
