2019 is nowhere near over, but it has already been a standout year for South Korean cinema. Not only is Bong Joon-ho's Parasite one of the best films of the year — and one of the most talked about — but it earned the Asian nation its first Palme d'Or from the Cannes Film Festival. No wonder director Bong was greeted by a crowd at the airport when he arrived back from the south of France after the glitzy event.

Parasite is also one of the movies on this year's Korean Film Festival in Australia lineup; however the smash hit isn't the only great flick on offer between Thursday, September 5 and Sunday, September 8. If you're keen to dive into the exciting and eclectic films produced by the country — which celebrates 100 years in the movie business this year — then you're in the right spot.

Screening at Elizabeth Picture Theatre, this year's KOFFIA features everything from blockbusters to indies and dramas to comedies. Catch cop flick The Gangster, the Cop, the Devil before it's remade in the US — or revel in Korean War tap-dance musical Swing Kids, step into tensions with North Korean in The Spy Gone North and explore a real-life tragedy with Birthday.

And, while you're feasting your eyes on all of the above, you'll also help commemorate KOFFIA's huge 10th year.
