The Korean Film Festival in Australia (KOFFIA) returns into cinemas in 2022 with a fabulous line-up of excellent new Korean films, spanning across a range of exciting genres.

Taking place in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, and Brisbane, the festival program features 13 of the finest films from Korea’s internationally recognised film industry.

KOFFIA Programmer Francis Lee says, “We put our hearts and souls into selecting 13 Korean films of diverse genres especially after the Korean film industry was heavily impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic over the last couple of years. We feel highly confident whether you are a film buff or not, this year’s curation of 13 films will lead you to a kaleidoscopic cinematic journey encompassing the spectrum of human emotions.”

“We wish KOFFIA will continue to serve as a platform on which more and more Australians will discover and enjoy the Korean way of storytelling, cinematography, acting and many more that are resonating with the global audience.”

KOFFIA is a cinematic experience for people of all tastes, ages and cultural backgrounds. As such, every film presented at the festival screens with English subtitles.
