<Cinema Paradiso> was a project to transform the overly uniform and commercialized film industry into a diversified Cinema Paradise. We were selected among 30 teams out of 1,500 teams nationwide as ‘Dream challenger 2014’ hosted by the Korea Scholarship Foundation, and won the grand prize after the program.

In Korea, three giant multiplex industries are monopolizing our film market, impeding cultural diversity. Thus, Korean film industry is suffering from the "vertical integration" of a company that has capital investments, production, distribution and screening. Having a dream of loving movies and working in the future film industry, we traveled to England to find some clues to solve this problem.

Compared to the situation in our country, where most of the nation's theaters are three multiplexes, the situation in Britain, where the number of multiplex theaters are not even half of all cinemas, seemed a bit unique. There were also many unusual independent theaters. Cinema on piles of refrigerators, cinema for cyclists, movie theaters that are more than 100 years old and movie theaters that are dedicated to fostering artists in the community are showing movies. We could find an answer to our situation where the number of independent cinemas dwindled and their cultural importance narrowed as the years went by.
