Award Winning Films at KOFFIA!

The KOFFIA Korean Film Festival 2011 is less than 50 days away, and to celebrate we are announcing the first film in our exciting line-up for this year! Our freshly updated website will be launching very soon, and all will soon be revealed, but for now as a little taste of things to come, we would like to announce a special title we are all extremely excited about. 

Screening as part of our new "Shorts on the Park" series, which will take place at the Korean Cultural Office during the festival and open for all to attend, will be the award winning short film "Broken Night" (Pu-Seo-Jin Bam). Winner of the Silver Bear Jury prize at the 61st Berlin International Film Festival, "Broken Night" is another creative piece of film-making from rising star director Yang Hyo-joo. 

A portrait of isolated youth on a lonely night, an intensely fun drama that never stops moving, it is a wonderful entry into the KOFFIA 2011 line-up and we are proud to have it. Just one of the many award winning films that will be announced over the next few weeks, as we prepare to take our audience on a roller-coaster ride of Korean drama. So make sure you "HOLD ON TIGHT!". 

Thanks to the Korea National University of Arts (KNUA) for their assistance with the screening.
