We are one of the rare Korean Film Festivals in the world to feature more than just blockbuster hits direct from Korea. While we do show the latest hit films, like “The Unjust” and “The Man From Nowhere”, we also focus on documentaries, short films, art house and independent cinema, classic pieces and give opportunities to Korean-Australian film-makers.
This diversity is what separates us from the rest, and we are very proud of this fact. KOFFIA also features many elements outside of just film, such as traditional cultural performances, modern musical performances, many industry forums, Q&A’s, free events, video booth, audience award, themed nights, double headers and so much more.
