Now in its 15th consecutive year, the 2021 Korean Film Festival in Singapore will be screening 8 different films across 15 timeslots over 2 weekends from 7th to 17th October 2021. Tickets are completely free and bookings will be opened to all fully-vaccinated individuals on a first-come, first-served basis.
Last year, the Korean Film Festival was held completely online. But this time around, the festival will be conducted in an upgraded hybrid format – 8 titles will be screened offline at Golden Village Suntec and up to 30 classic Korean films online via meWATCH.
The event will be opening with ‘The Book of Fish’ via a simultaneous screening in partnership with Busan International Film Festival in show of solidarity during this pandemic. A special live Q&A session will also be held after the movie with director Lee Joon Ik, actor Byun Yo Han and the movie goers in Busan.
