Catch the 1st Korean Architectural Film Festival in Manila from June 1 to 3

Celebrating the unwavering relationship between the Philippines and Korea, the Korean Cultural Center in the Philippines (KCC) in partnership with Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) and Seoul International Architecture Film Festival (SIAFF) launched the first Korean Architectural Film Festival last June 1, 2018, at FDCP Cinematheque Manila.

Korea has been hosting the Seoul International Film Festival for ten years but it is the first time for the festival to be held overseas.  The three-day festival, happening from June 1 to 3 in Manila, hosts an inspiring program of talks, specially-curated screenings of films and documentaries with director question and answer segment, as well as photo installations that will add a creative part to the festival.

The films explore architecture’s creative and innovative pursuits. The featured length and short films touch upon topics such as urban planning, innovative housing architecture and include exclusive windows into the minds of Korean architects Itami Jun, Doojin Hwang, Hyoungnam Lim and Eunjoo Roh.

 The 2018 Korean Architecture Film Festival is inviting people who are fond of Korean culture, who wants to know further about the architectural and urban culture Korea and to those who want to see a different theme of film aside from the popular romance, drama and action stories. 

Architecture forum and discussion

Korean and Filipino experts on architecture and filmmaking will be joining the two-day Architecture forum and discussion on June 1 to 2 at FDCP.

Four Korean architects and filmmakers will fly from Korea to share their insights on urbanism and architecture in films. Yun Jae Seon, a commissioner of Seoul International Architecture Film Festival (SIAFF) and the head of Team153 Architecture Co., is active in doing architectural culture activities. He strives to make urban architecture a pop culture.

Kim Young Woo is film Curator, programmer, and festival consultant. Since 2014, he joined the selection committee of Busan International Film Festival as a programmer-in-charge of Asian cinema. He has been a member of the selection committee of Asian Cinema Fund (ACF) and Asian Network of Documentary (AND) Fund and involving Asian Project Market (APM) as well.

Aside from Korean architectural films, two architecture-themed films showcasing Philippine architecture will be screened in the film festival.
