The Contemporary Cinema Research Institute at Hanyang University(COCRI) is a university-based research organization which was established in 2005 in order to frame a new academic paradigm for cinema studies in the 21st century, by promoting its multidisciplinary approaches to the Arts and Humanities.

The institute aims to explore the contemporary status of cinema as an aesthetic, industrial, and cultural phenomenon in relation to both the prognosis on that of its future and the rediscovery of that of its past. 

The Contemporary Cinema Research Institute is solely devoted to leading the development of cinema studies in Korea and to playing its role as the central hub for domestic and international scholars in the fields to join together and exchange their ideas. 

For its such a purpose, the Institute annually holds colloqiua, lectures, and conferences and publishes the book series of The Contemporary Korean Cinema and the quarterly academic journal Contemporary Cinema Studies.
