After a two-year hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Korean Film Festival is back in full swing this year.
A total of seven films will be shown at the 2022 Korean Film Festival. Screenings will be held at SM Mall of Asia, SM Megamall, SM City North EDSA, SM City Grand Central, and SM Southmall from August 11 to 14. All screenings are for free and on a first come, first served basis.
A joint project of the Embassy of the Republic of Korea, the Korean Cultural Center in the Philippines, and SM Cinema, this year’s festival kicks off at SM Aura Premier on August 10 with no less than Hong Wonchan, director of the festival’s opening film Deliver Us From Evil. He will be joined by another Korean director Lee Woojung whose recent film, Snowball, is also included in the lineup of film for this year’s festival.
Other festival must-sees include the action-drama film Escape from Mogadishu by Ryu Seung-Wan; drama films Miracle: Letters to the President by Lee Jang-Hoon and The Novelist’s Film by Hong Sang-Soo; drama-mystery film The Day I Died: Unclosed Case by Park Jiwan; and comedy-romance film Perhaps Love by Jo Eun-Ji.
Interested moviegoers may visit KCC’s Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to reserve slots for the opening ceremony on August 10 at SM Aura Premier Cinema 2 and for the Talk with the Filmmakers on August 11, 1:30 p.m. at the FDCP Cinematheque Centre Manila.
