Week-long Swedish Film Festival Begins Today

The Swedish Film Festival will be held in Seoul, Busan, Incheon and Gwangju this month to introduce Swedish contemporary films and trends to Korean audiences.

Swedish cinema returns to Korea every autumn, as the Swedish Film Festival (SFF) celebrates its 8th edition this year.

This year marks a special occasion as it is the 60th Anniversary of Diplomatic Relations between Sweden and the Republic of Korea.

The Swedish Film Festival is organized by the Embassy of Sweden in Seoul, in collaboration with the Swedish Institute and the Swedish Film Institute.

All screening films have Korean subtitles only.
