Korean Film Festival (KOFFIA) 2017

Festival season is upon us once again, and the fine folks at the Korean Film Festival in Australia (KOFFIA) are putting on another great show for us starting this Thursday 17 August. This year the festival is popping up in eight Australian cities, starting with Sydney and ending in Hobart & Darwin in late September:

Sydney: 17-26 August
Adelaide: 1-3 September
Perth: 1-3 September
Melbourne: 7-14 September
Brisbane: 8-10 September
Canberra: 15-17 September
Darwin: 22-23 September
Hobart: 22-23 September

On offer are a total of 24 features covering the gamut of genres and styles coming out of South Korea’s cinema powerhouse, ensuring there’s something to see for everyone. For retro fans, this year’s look back is a retrospective films by director Kim Jee-Woon showing as free screenings at the Korean Cultural Centre in Sydney. All six of these are HC team favourites (links are to reviews):
