Cinema Underground is a website created by cinephiles for cinephiles in support of a project to build a world-class exhibition facility in Seoul that offers fun, distinctive cultural programming and events for film enthusiasts.
Our aim is to provide an exciting alternative to conventional movie-going by screening UNSEEN masterworks from high and low cinema in an interactive and educational context that restores the aesthetic experience of discovery, enjoyment and critical appraisal.
Cinema Underground will…
- Fill the strong need in Korea for unique, sophisticated entertainment
- Create a NEW cultural landmark and destination for visitors to Korea
- Provide educational programs and a fresh context for learning about the history of world film
- Raise the level of film art and film appreciation in Korea
- Engage and attract various foreign communities in Korea through diverse cultural content and schedule of events
- Act as a nexus point for film students, fans and professionals to meet and interact
- Develop joint programs to support local businesses, community groups and government organizations
