Supporting Program

Information regarding the 12th Korean Film Festival Frankfurt’s supporting program will be coming soon…

Recap on the Supporting Program of 2022

The city of Frankfurt has always been a special hotspot for the Korean diaspora in Germany. It is therefore important to us to represent Korean culture beyond film culture and to bring it closer to interested visitors. Due to the numerous booths, which where set up in the lobby of the Cinestar Metropolis between 20.10 – 23.10., the visitors were given the opportunity to engage with the various aspects of Korean culture as well as to exchange ideas with other visitors and the Project K team. Thanks to the cooperation with the Korea Agro-Fisheries & Food Trade Corporation, we were able to offer our visitors Korean finger food as well as alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages over the three days. There was also a Hanbok booth, which was provided by our cooperation partner KTO, where visitors could try on traditional robes, as well as a craft booth particular for our young visitors where they could design pottery, fans and much more themselves. There was also a quiz booth with questions about Project K, the Korean film world and Korean culture, where visitors could win various prizes. The Korean Studies department at the Goethe University in Frankfurt provided interested guests with information about studying Korean Studies and gave them a first insight into the Korean alphabet, Hangeul. In addition, the K-Pop Dance Contest <re*play> took place again this year in cooperation with re*markable. Particularly the young audience was enthusiastic about the contest, which finally took place on site after two years of the pandemic.

Outside of the localities of cinemas, we also offered our guests a small cultural program in cooperation with Cafe Kyubang. From October 20th to 26th visitors could enjoy a wide variety of Korean drinks and dishes in the café and experience Korean food culture.

Project K would like to thank all supporters, sponsors, cooperation partners, Project K Family and Project K Supporter members for their support.
