A three-day Korean film fest is being held here from Tuesday showcasing a string of films like ‘The Night of Woman, The Night of Moon, The Night of Outland,” which has been selected by Indian K-lovers. The fest is part of the celebration of the 50th anniversary of diplomatic ties between Korea and India.
To be held at the India International Centre (IIC), the film festival is being hosted by KCCI with the cooperation of the Korean Film Council, the Film Festival for Women's Rights (FIWOM) from Korea, and the local Indian International Centre. “The criteria for selecting films were based as a result of a survey of local Korean culture and film lovers, focusing on topics of recent interest in Indian society, and the festival's programs are designed accordingly,” according to a statement here.
Hwang Il Yong, Director of the Korean Cultural Centre India said, “We were able to see that local Indians’ love and interest in Korean culture and movies has deepened, and its individual tastes have become more diverse as we have prepared for this year’s New Delhi Korean Film Festival. We plan to further develop special programs to introduce and experience Korean movies while introducing and disseminating various Korean cultures in India.”
