2022 KOREAN FILM FESTIVAL 
ANNOUNCES FULL LINEUP

The Biggest Annual Korean Film Festival in Singapore 
Runs October 6 - 16, 2022

SINGAPORE - The 2022 Korean Film Festival (KFF) organised by the Embassy of the Republic of Korea in Singapore returns with a rich and diverse line-up for all to enjoy.


This year's KFF will showcase 8 titles with 15 free public screenings at Golden Village Suntec and National Gallery Singapore under the theme of 'Evergreen', which signifies reflecting on the treasured values that have not withered even in difficult times due to COVID-19.


To formally commence the festival, there will be a special screening of <Miracle> directed by LEE Janghoon who will be gracing the event in person at the National Gallery Singapore. Apart from sharing insightful remarks on their experiences in producing films, Director LEE will also be partaking in the Q&A segment after the screening to answer questions from the floor. 

 

<Miracle>, based on the real story of Yangwon Station, the first privately funded station in Korea, tells the story of what happens while working with the villagers to build a train station, starring PARK Jeongmin, LEE Sung-min, and member of K-pop group Girls' Generation, LIM Yoon-a. This film which was directed and co-written by Lee Janghoon, took home the 24th Udine Far East Film Festival’s top-prize Golden Mulberry award. 
Fans of Korean Cinema can look forward to a line-up showcasing various genres from box-office hits, independent cinema, animation, documentary, and award-winning films.

 

From the romance-packed “Beauty Inside” which was remade into a famous K-drama of the same name to the touching documentary “Granny Poetry Club” which depicts the lives of a group of elderly Korean women who learn Hangeul and open their eyes to a new world, audiences can pick from a selection of Korean titles to satisfy their K-cinematic cravings. 

 

Also not to be missed is the film “Broker”, which shows how one can truly unite as a family without sharing blood ties, starring South Korean veteran actor, SONG Kang-ho, winning ‘Best Actor Award’ at the  2022 Cannes Film Festival.


Ambassador CHOI Hoon expresses his hope that, despite the fact that COVID-19 did not depart from us altogether, the Korean Film Festival, which embraces precious values such as family, love, and friendship, would offer joy to everyone.  He also appreciates the continued love and support towards Korean films by passionate Singaporean fans.  

 

Screening at Golden Village at Suntec, tickets will be free but subject to availability. For more details on the line-up and ticket registration, please visit the festival (KFF) website: www.sgkff.com
