Films and Ideas

Films tell stories, communicate ideas, and excite our imagination. Films are created by cultures and reflect those cultures, and in turn, affect those cultures. Films are an art form, a source of popular entertainment and a powerful method for educating people.

Films have elements in common with plays and dances, – scripts, sets, costumes, production, direction, actors, audiences, storyboards, and scores.

The visual elements of film give them a universal power of communication. Films have become popular worldwide by dubbing the soundtrack or using subtitles to translate the dialogue into the language of the viewer.
