WIN tickets to Korean film at MIFF 2011!

Korean Cultural Office | KOFFIA Korean Film Festival

Prepare to HOLD ON TIGHT as the Korean Film Festival in Australia (KOFFIA) graces Melbourne for the first time ever this September! In what will be 4 days of drama, comedy, action and more, KOFFIA will take Victorians on an intense ride of Korean cinema!

Taking place at ACMI Cinemas, the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, Federation Square, Melbourne, September 10-13 will see a Korean wave of culture and entertainment hit ACMI as we celebrate Korean Thanksgiving (Chuseok) on September 12th.

We are delighted to announce KOFFIA will be forming a special Festival Partnership with the iconic Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF), which in 2011 is celebrating its 60th anniversary. Known for presenting a wealth of Korean cinema over the years, in fact more than 150 Korean films, this partnership will hopefully strengthen the presence of quality Korean content in Melbourne.

Due to a wealth of interest from Korean film fanatics, no doubt fostered by watching superb Korean cinema at MIFF, we decided to expand to this region. To thank those people for their passion, we are running a competition to WIN TICKETS to a Korean film of your choice at MIFF 60!

8 Korean feature films have been selected in the MIFF line-up for 2011. From the political thriller The Unjust and award winning indie drama The Journals of Musan, to Hong Sang-soo’s piece of meta-fiction Oki’s Movie and the action packed spectacular The Yellow Sea. The rest of the line-up includes Hong Sang-soo’s latest The Day He Arrives, the Park Hae-il KAFA hit End of Animal, the latest Jeonju Digital Project entry, and even a retrospective look at Bong Joon-ho’s quirky Barking Dogs Never Bite.

We are offering KOFFIA Melbourne fans the chance to win a double pass to one of the following:

  • The Journals of Musan (Wed 27th July, 11am, ACMI)
  • Oki’s Movie (Thurs 28th July, 4:45pm, Forum Theatre)
  • The Unjust (Tues 2nd Aug, 6:30pm, Forum Theatre)
