In partnership with SM Cinema and the Film Development Council of the Philippines, Korean Cultural Center in the Philippines is holding a film screening in celebration of International Women's Month

The Korean Cultural Center in the Philippines (KCC) invites you to celebrate the National Women’s Month through “Women’s Lives on Film” this March!

KCC, in partnership with SM Cinema and Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) is screening three iconic Korean women’s films this month. The first film will be shown on March 17, 7PM at the KCC Building located in Taguig City while the two other films will be shown for free on March 30 and 31 respectively, at 7PM on both days at SM Cinema Aura Premier.

Presenting Cart (Director Boo Jiyoung, 2014), Kim Minyoung of the Report Card (Director Lee Jaeeun, Lim Jisun, 2022), and Baseball Girl (Director Choi Yuntae, 2020), this specially curated film screening intends to convey the stories of women, of all ages, in our society – their viewpoints, challenges, and triumphs with the intent of bringing gender empowerment and awareness to light.
