Joy N Cinema [조이앤시네마 전주] is a private film distribution company which specialises in releasing quality local and foreign independent and art house movies in South Korea. It operates two other cinemas aside from this one on JIFF Film Street [전주 영화의거리] — in Garosugil, Seoul; and Dangjin, Chungcheongnam-do. The Jeonju branch is located in Jeonju’s neighborhood Gosa [Gosa-dong/고사동] –part of its administrative neighborhood Jungang [Jungang-dong/중앙동]–in the Wansan District [Wansan-gu/완산구], a short walk to/from CineQ — JIFF Film Street Branch [씨네Q 전주영화의거리점].

According to an SNS post by the cinema, the Run On scenes were filmed on Monday 21st September 2020.

Falsified (2017), the movie featured in the Run On scene, is a 16-minute short film from the UK. Its story is centered on a man and his 32-year search for his son who was abducted during the Spanish political removal of babies (“The Lost Children of Francoism”) from so-called Marxist families between the 1930s and 1980s. It has won 16 awards to date, including Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor at the Actors Awards, Los Angeles (December 2017). However, a review from thefilmmagazine.com stated it had “unnecessarily ponderous moments and cliché-ridden script” and “a general sense of disjointedness”.
