Roaring Currents is a film about the Battle of Myeongnyang, where Joseon admiral Yi Sun-sin led the 12 ships under his command to victory in a seemingly hopeless war against a fleet of 330 invading Japanese vessels. Roaring Currents is directed and co-written by Kim Han-min and stars Choi Min-sik and Ryu Seung-ryong.

In addition to Roaring Currents, the film festival also showcases a selection of other box office hits, including Punch (starring Yoo Ah-In, Kim Yun-seok), Boomerang Family (starring Park Hae-il, Yoon Jae-moon, Kong Hyo-Jin) and Miss Granny (starring Shim Eun-Kyung, Na Moon-Hee, Jung Jinyoung (B1A4)). The festival would kick off with the opening film, Thread of Lies, starring Kim Hee-Ae, Ko Asung, Kim Hyang-Gi and Yoo Ah-In.
