SM Cinemas and The Ambassador of The Republic of Korea Mr Hye Min Lee invited Orange Magazine TV to the 2011 Korean Film Festival. Last night, September 19, a premiere screening of one of the entries to the 2011 KOREAN FILM FESTIVAL was held in SM Mall of Asia to finally open the whole week event in Cooperation with Korean Cultural Center and SM Cinema. Dubbed as “7 different Colors of Love”, the Festival aims to reach the Filipino movie goers appreciate the films made by highly respected Korean film enthusiasts and to showcase the Korean culture, society and way of life as it is shown in the films included in the Festival.
We preview the first film starring Kang Dong Won and Song Kang Ho entitled Secret Reunion that night and I was personally amazed by their cinematography as well. Me being a movie reviewer of our Local Films, I can say that they are very passionate about their craft. The movie Secret Reunion is just one of the 7 films in the festival and I already fell in love with it. I am sure the rest of the films are equally interesting too!
The recently opened Korean Cultural Center will be spearheading the Korean Film Festival this year with focus on the themes of love. Seven films will be screened on September 20-25 at the SM Mall of Asia and SM North Edsa following a huge turnout of audience at last year’s Horror Film Festival. The Korean Cultural Center has also expanded the film festival to include the province of Cebu. The Korean Film Festival in Cebu will be from September
