KAFA Graduate Works on KoBiz Online Screening for the Second Time
KAFA (Korean Academy of Film Arts) is not a new brand name anymore to the Korean film lovers worldwide. KAFA is home to Korean cinema today, training the most active producers, cinematographers and script writers, besides the big names like BONG Joon-ho, CHOI Dong-hoon and HUR Jin-ho. KoBiz Online Screening played KAFA graduate short films (live-action and animation) for the first time last year in collaboration with KAFA and this year, the feature-length films have been newly added.
KAFA shorts have been warmly received at major international short and animation film festivals this year and last year, and 22 of these unique works are to be shown on the KoBiz Online Screening. They mostly deal with the human nature in extreme circumstances and different generational aspects in life, in the form of live-action and animation. In terms of genres, they are diverse ranging from crime, romance, fantasy and so on. In addition, full length feature films are also introduced, including Girl on the Edge by PARK Geun-buem and The Boys Who Cried Wolf by KIM Jin-hwang, which were passionately received at the Busan International Film Festival, and Our Love Story by LEE Hyun-ju, a story of a lesbian couple, which made to the finalists in 2016 Jeonju International Film Festival.
The 2016 KAFA FILM COLLECTION will be shown on the KoBiz OS website (screening.koreanfilm.or.kr) for 3 months starting from Mar 28th.
