The South Korean Embassy and Pakistan National Council of the Arts are holding a Korean Film Festival at the National Art Gallery in Islamabad, November 5 6. The event will screen four Korean features spanning eight years.

The festival will open with Im Kwon-taek's 100th feature, "Beyond the Years" (2007), a music-themed reprisal of his '93 classic "Sopyeonje". Rounding out the program are Bong Joon-ho's monster hit "The Host" (2006), and two films from the year 2000, Park Dae-yeong's comedy "Just Do It!" and Yang Yoon-ho's firefighting blockbuster "Libera Me". KOFIC supported English-subtitled prints for those two films.

Meanwhile, over in Myanmar, the former capital city of Yangon hosts a 4-day Korean film festival, kicking off Nov. 7th. Screening at the Thamada Cinema are five Korean movies including Jeon Yoon-soo's "Le Grand Chief" (2007), Kim Dong-hyun-VI's "Hello, Stranger" (2007), Lim Tae-hyeong's "Little Brother" ("Little Brother", 2005) and two other features to be showcased.
