This year's Cannes Best Director - winning Korean Film is screening at the Korean Film Festival in Auckland

We return with six feature films including the award winners at the Cannes, Oscar & Golden Globe.

 6-8 October 2022 at Academy Cinemas, Auckland - Free Admission

The Korean Consulate in Auckland will host the 11th Korean Film Festival in conjunction with the Korean Cinerama Trust and Ellen Melville Centre from 6th to 8th October at Academy Cinemas. This three-day festival is returning with six films across a range of genres after three years in abeyance due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This event is a part of Korean Culture Week, which will take place on the first week of October.

The 2022 Cannes best director prize-winning Korean film Decision to Leave will open the Korean Film Festival in Auckland on 5 October with a VIP reception.

Decision to leave is Director Chan-Wook Park's latest film and attracted favourable reviews and ratings  after winning the best director prize at this year's Cannes Film Festival. Decision to leave will be screened in local theaters in late October. The programme includes Minari (2021), which won the Golden Globe for best foreign language film and the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress (Yuh-Jung Youn), Parasite (2019), the double winner of the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival and the Oscar for the Best Picture and three other Korean films.

The Festival will sate the thirst for film that has been building since the COVID-19 lockdowns amongst those who are interested in and follow Korean films.
