First Look: Korean Film Festival in Australia 2011


KOFFIA2011 posterBack for a second year, the Korean Film Festival in Australia (KOFFIA) has unveiled its poster for the 2011, along with two award winning short films announced earlier this week.

Park Chan-wook’s Paranmanjang (Night Fishing) made headlines for being shot entirely on the iPhone 4, and went on to win the Golden Bear for Best Short Film at the 61st Berlin International Film Festival.

Not content to stop there, KOFFIA 2011 has also managed to secure the Silver Bear winner for Best Short Film Pu-Seo-Jin Bam (Broken Night) from rising star director Yang Hyo-joo.

The Reel Bits is proud to be a Festival Partner again this year, following our successful partnership (as DVD Bits) with KOFFIA 2011. In addition to covering the festival in full, Richard Gray serves as the Blog Editor on the official KOFFIA Blog. We will also be involved in a few of the special events, but more on that later.

KOFFIA 2011 will run from August 24 to 29 at the Dendy Opera Quays in Sydney, before moving to Melbourne’s ACMI from September 10 to 13.
