Korean Academy of Film Arts (KAFA) is holding its Graduation Film Festival 2016 from January 22nd to 24th for three days. The festival will take place at Indieplus, an indie film exclusive theater and Lotte cinema Broadway in Seoul.
KAFA Graduation Film Festival is to showcase movies by 32nd regular course students for the first time. The films produced last year deal with various subjects like agonies of generations living in this time, different ways of love and human nature revealed in extreme situations. 33 short films and short animations are waiting for audiences.
Meanwhile, KAFA has had about 600 graduates in many fields including directing, filming, producing and animation since it was founded 32 years ago. It turned out representative directors of Korean cinema like BONG Joon-ho, CHOI Dong-hoon, E J-yong, IM Sang-soo and more.
Last year, On The White Planet by HUR Bum-wook won the Grand Prize in the feature films of the Holland Animation Film Festival and Alice In Earnestland by AHN Gooc-jin picked the Best Actress award (LEE Jung-hyun) at the Blue Dragon Awards.
Tickets will be available on a first come, first served basis for free at the theaters during the festival. More information about the fest including movie information and schedule is on the KAFA official facebook (www.facebook.com/kafa1984).
