    Forum 2018: Food Storytelling – Inform, Entertain & Explore
    The food fever has been the phenomenon spreading through television programs for the past few years, and it is still going on at present, in 2018. In addition to the informational programs that show us around local farms and popular restaurants, cooking shows draw the viewers’ attention with celebrity chefs’ cooking skills, and tasting shows feature celebrities touring around and eating at hot spots in and out of Korea. It is inspiring that television programs with new formats are being developed and that there are more and more films and documentaries with sociological contemplation on history and culture around food. 
    ‘Forum 2018: Food Storytelling – Inform, Entertain & Explore’ will offer a great opportunity for us to think about our perspectives and attitude on food and culture around food, through studying the evolution of food storytelling varying from television shows on food to documentaries and fiction films with humanistic discourse on food. Panels including television producer, film director, food writer and chef will share and discuss their experience in the field, which will be followed by Q&A with the audience.

    Free Outdoor Screenings at Namsangol Hanok Village
    Free outdoor screenings will be offered from 1st to 4th, November at Cheonugak Square of Namsangol Hanok Village, a newly added festival venue.
