A free film festival kicks off Aug. 16 for two weeks in Seoul.

Organized by Cine de Seoul and sponsored by private corporations including CJ E&M, Mister Pizza and AskVERITAS Asset Management, the 2013 Seoul Citizen Film Festival will be held at venues throughout Seoul. Han River riverside parks, Cheonggye Plaza and a cafe will be converted into temporary theaters. At one venue, Seoul Children’s Grand Park, moviegoers are free to bring their pets along. Screenings begin every night at 8:30 p.m.

The featured movies are mostly hits from the past two years, such as “Blind,” “The Thieves,” “Midnight in Paris,” and “Punch.” All movies will accommodate those with seeing and hearing disabilities.
