Meet the many faces of Korean cinema
The Korean Film Festival in Australia (KOFFIA) is back in 2013 for the fourth consecutive year, bringing the best and latest in Korean cinema to Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.

KOFFIA 2013 will take place at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) in Melbourne from September 5 to September 11 with a fantastic line-up of 17 feature-length films and a wide range of award-winning short films.

The festival will open with Jo Sung-hee's A Werewolf Boy, a romantic comedy starring Soong Joong-ki and Park Bo-young, and will close with Choi Dong-hoon's The Thieves, an action crime thriller starring Kim Yun-seok, Kim Hye-soo and Jeon Ji-hyun. Click here for the full film program.

KOFFIA is organized by the Korean Cultural Office (KCO), a diplomatic non-profit organization based in Sydney that aims to strengthen the relationship between Australia and Korea through cultural exchange.

This year's festival will be celebrating 'The many faces of Korean cinema' and will spotlight the talented directors, actors and actresses that make up the Korean film industry.
