Manilla's Korean Film Festival Kicks Off

2009/10/01 Source

Manilla's 2009 Korean Film Festival opened Sept 23, offering free screenings to the public during its one week run. Sponsored by the Korean Embassy and held at Shangri-La Plaza, the fest showcases seven Korean features and celebrates the "Philippines-Republic of Korea Friendship Year".

The program features some of the most artistically accomplished films in Korean cinema over the last 9 years, including renowned and emerging directors. Korean TV dramas are already popular in the Philippines, but audiences have yet to be exposed to Korean feature filmmaking.

The seven films in the program are "Old Boy" (Park Chan-wook), "Barking Dogs Never Bite" (Bong Joon-ho), "Sa-Kwa" (Kang Yi-kwan), "Beyond the Years" (Im Kwon-taek), "The Show Must Go on" (Han Jae-rim), "Forbidden Quest" (Kim Dae-woo) and "Driving With My Wife's Lover" (Kim Tae-sik).
