WHY WE EXIST
We are GIGAN, which is short for gigantic! Founded in October 2013 in London, the idea of the magazine comes from passionate people. Through experiences traveling around the world, we found that Hollywood films dominate film markets despite Japanese cinema also being entertaining and socially valuable as well as having unaltered original content and great storytelling. We want to share great cinema experiences that can change your world.
We believe just one 90 minute film can change the views of a lot of people, regardless of their nationality, religion, background and whatever else might make that person unique – film can affect everybody. This journey will not be easy because we are challenging conventional wisdom, but we believe this challenge is not only for Japanese cinema, but also for any country’s film industry if they wish to succeed globally. We hope to break down the status-quo and create a new culture.
