  • KOFIC Hosted KAFA 2018 Graduation Film Festival
  • by Christopher Weatherspoon /  Jan 30, 2018
  • Annual Sell-Out Event Showcased Korea’s Top New Filmmaking Talents

    The Korean Film Council (KOFIC: Chairperson - OH Seok-geun) hosted the 2018 Graduation Film Festival for the Korean Academy of Film Arts (KAFA) at the Megabox Shinchon from January 26 to 28.

    The KAFA Graduation Film Festival, which offers audiences the first chance to see the latest short films from Korea’s next generation of up-and-coming filmmakers, sells out every year with tickets distributed on a first-come-first-served basis free of charge. The continued popularity of the event is a testament to the high level of talent that KAFA attracts for its prestigious training program.

    KAFA, which celebrates its 35th anniversary this year, has produced over 700 graduates in various fields of filmmaking including directing, producing, animation and cinematography. The program has been responsible for some of Korea’s most acclaimed film talents and includes BONG Joon-ho, JANG Joon-hwan and KIM Tae-yong among its ranks of alumni. 

    This latest edition of the KAFA Graduation Film Festival presented 17 films that were produced by 34 students over the course of 2017.
