The second season of the Korean Cultural Office’s Cinema on the Park has been announced, and it is an amazing line-up for the first six months of 2012. On every Thursday night throughout the year, the KCO showcases Korean films for FREE in their multi-function room, including guest-speakers, discussion forums and films that you won’t see anywhere else. Did we mention that this is free?
With 21 feature films and 14 guest speakers in the first half of the year alone, this is going to be a big one. The season kicks off with the award-winning Poetry (2010, Lee Changdong), with instant classic I Saw The Devil (2010, Kim Jiwoon) and festival favourite The Yellow Sea (2010, Na Hongjin) sure to be seat-fillers.
Guest speakers will include Canadian Film Festival Artistic Director Matt Ravier, Russell Edwards of Variety, Julie Rigg of ABC National Radio’s Movie Time, Fantastic Asia Film Festival Director Neil Foley, and Australian artist Yvonne Boag, whose works will be featured in an upcoming exhibition at the office.
The Korean Cultural Office is located at Ground Floor, 255 Elizabeth St, Sydney.
