Home page



The Toronto Korean Film Festival (TKFF) is an annual 9 days festival founded in 2012. We are a group of young Korean film enthusiasts, who got together with the common goal of wanting to share Korean culture and films with the Toronto community. We feel strongly about the power of this medium and aim to create synergy between Koreans, Canadians, filmlovers, scholars, and Toronto.

Toronto Korean Film Festival successfully launched on January of 2012 with the slogan : Taste Kimchi Cinema.

With the purpose of expanding international Korean film market and its recognition in Toronto, they are hosting free retrospective screenings of leading Korean directors. February 25th, 2012 launched the first of the series, with director Lee Myung-se’s“Nowhere to Hide”. The retrospective screenings will be held in various Toronto academic locations including University of Toronto, Ryerson university, OCAD, Seneca, and York university.

The 10 day festival will be held from June 22nd until July 1st, 2012. With support from various local media groups and fellow film festivals, they are confident in our strong programming. The festival will be composed of various genres, classics and new films, up and coming directors, indie works, shorts, and many others. The variety in the programming will satisfy audiences of all ages while bringing Korean traditional and contemporary culture to Torontonians. Toronto Korean Film Festival is not just a celebration for the Koreans in Toronto, but will push towards becoming a celebration in Canada for Korean culture.
