News: Korean Films At Melbourne International Film Festival 2014

By Hieu Chau

Australian fans of Korean cinema have much to be excited about as some of MKC's favourite films of the past year will be featured at this year's Melbourne International Film Festival (MIFF).

As part of MIFF's yearly Accent on Asia program, organisers have selected four South Korean features for the annual film event: A Girl At My Door, A Hard Day, Han Gong-Ju and Our Sunhi.

A Girl At My Door and A Hard Day recently screened at this year's Cannes Film Festival where they were each lovingly praised by own Pierce Conran. 

Han Gong-Ju has been welcomed with much critical adoration since its international debut at last year's Busan International Film Festival and has since gone on to become a festival darling.

Meanwhile, Our Sunhi, the latest from director Hong Sang-soo, was on our Top 10 Korean Films of 2013 list and was described by MKC's John A. Riley as "a refinement and distillation of the director's technique as he approaches an Ozu-like mastery of his craft". John's full review for the film can be found here.

Reviews and features on Korean film appear regularly on Modern Korean Cinema.  For film news, external reviews, and box office analysis, take a look at the Korean Box Office UpdateKorean Cinema News and the Weekly Korean Reviews, which appear weekly on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings (Korean Standard Time).
