Back for its 7th year and bigger than ever, KOFFIA (Korean Film Festival in Australia) has come to roost with the very best of Korean cinema that's subtitled in English. From edge of the seat moments, to arthouse delights and heart-warming rom-coms, there's something for everyone. Presented by the Korean Cultural Centre Australia and Samsung, this year presents itself with a new flavour.
With Gujeolpan as its theme (a traditional dish that involves several ingredients in wrappings to present one wholesome flavour), KOFFIA is reflecting it by bringing together films of diverse genres and types, to bring you one wholesome delicacy to feast your eyes upon. CLICK HERE for the program.

With a line-up of cinematic masterpieces and blockbuster hits like 'The Wailing,' 'Like for Likes' and 'Alice in Earnestland.' This event is not to be missed!
The Wailing at 156mins long is a supernatural thriller that'll have you glued to the screen from start to finish. Considering the length of the film, I'd not be drinking too much, so you don't miss any of the exciting bits.
A seemingly peaceful village, a plague of mysterious and violent deaths; are poisonous wild mushrooms the cause? Under the lingering smell of death in the air, a police officer must find the mysterious Japanese man in a race against time to save his daughter.
An Australian premiere, rom-com Like for Likes at 123 mins, will put you back on the track of lightness and fun. Six individuals, three meetings, one love. This feel good film explores ever-changing modern day relationships, in light of social media.
Alice in Earnestland at 90 mins, gives you a fly on the wall view of what can conspire when you push someone too hard. It's enough to drive a woman to murder! Earnestland (modern day Korea) is the setting for dark forces that conspires to grind down a modern candide. Farce and political satire aside, this film is often truly scary.
