Korean Film Festival in Australia (KOFFIA) Expands to Brisbane in 2012


KOFFIA2011We’ve been working with the Korean Film Festival in Australia for several years now, so we are thrilled to share the news that KOFFIA will be expanding to three cities for its third year, including Brisbane in the 2012 tour.

KOFFIA is heading to Brisbane this September, following our Sydney and Melbourne legs, so spread the word! 3 years, 3 cities, 3 times the fun!

No word on the line-up yet, but Sydney can certainly look forward to a full calendar of Korean films in the meantime. The second season of the Korean Cultural Office’s Cinema on the Park has also launched.

With 21 feature films and 14 guest speakers in the first half of the year alone, this is going to be a big one. The season kicks off with the award-winning Poetry (2010, Lee Changdong), with instant classic I Saw The Devil (2010, Kim Jiwoon) and festival favourite The Yellow Sea (2010, Na Hongjin) sure to be seat-fillers.

Guest speakers will include Canadian Film Festival Artistic Director Matt Ravier,  Russell Edwards of Variety, Julie Rigg of ABC National Radio’s Movie Time, Fantastic Asia Film Festival Director Neil Foley, The Reel Bits’ very own Editor Richard Gray and Australian artist Yvonne Boag, whose works will be featured in an upcoming exhibition at the office.
