Project description

Everybody loves film and food. When the two are combined, it draws more attention and the impact gets bigger. Seoul International Food Film Festival (SIFFF) has been providing easier access to delightful and multisensory food and film experience since 2015. Celebrating the fifth edition in 2019, SIFFF presents "Taste of Australia," a special program dedicated to Australia. Seven Australian feature films portraying Australian food culture and related issues will be screened, and four Australian guests will be invited to participate in the festival including "Australian Night" party, guest talk shows titled "Delicious Talk" and a forum on sustainability issues. For "Dining Cinema," SIFFF's signature sell-out program, where the audience can enjoy food they see in the film, two Australian films will meet be featured. SIFFF's "Taste of Australia" will be the one-stop destination for anyone who is interested in either film, food, travel or Australia. The 2019 SIFF will run from September 6th to 11th at Seoul Namsan Gukakdang and Daehan Cinema in the center of Seoul.
