The 11th Seoul International Agape Film Festival (SIAFF) will take place from the 22nd to the 31st of May, in Sinchon, Seoul.
The festival, which has a Christian slant, selects films that reflect themes of love within its programming.
The Agape Choice category is due to screen productions that explore overcoming discrimination and adversity. Three Korean films – documentary My Place, social issue omnibus If You Were Me 6, and drama Compassion – feature in the line-up, alongside international films including basketball documentary Linsanity and acclaimed Indian comedy/drama English Vinglish.
Mission Choice comprises of films that share and explore Christian values. God’s Eye View, which premiered at Busan Film Festival last year, as well as documentaries Love is Stronger Than Death and Hope in Baseco, are Korea’s entries within the program.
Inner View contains films that explore the inner consciousness of the audience. My Boy is the only Korean film to feature, alongside Denzel Washington starring Flight amongst others.
