  • Film In The Theatres
    2,202 words
    Over the past decade the independent film industry has grown and is now considered a staple in the film industry as a whole. Many filmmakers find more artistic freedom in this side of the industry.

The following essay looks at how those influences helped to shape a new genre in the film industry, sighting Easy Rider as a main example, and suggests some possible reasons for the relatively short popularity of the genre. "The standard story...
  • Future Of The Australian Film Industry
    394 words
    It seems Australia's film success is not determined by its quality but by its box office returns. The national identity of Australia has become nothing but a market strategy.

Sustaining a productive innovative film industry seems dependent on the complex process of acquiring film funding, and the p...

  • Supportive Body For The Australian Film Industry
    2,537 words
    Australia produced the first feature film, one year before America. Today the film has been ravished by the savagery of age. As a flickering and decrepit piece of celluloid rolls in front of our eyes, the significantly diminished footage concerns the story of the Kelly gang. The Kelly Gang was shot in a time of wonder hope and optimism. Through the decay of the aging film, it depicts the final nail in Ned Kelly's coffin. As the armoured anti-hero fires off those last remaining shots, he is soon ...

    When Mussolini came into power in 1922 he aimed to establish a totalitarian state. This was achieved by 1825 and in 1026 he intervened for the first time in national cinema, taking over the Instituto Nazionale LUCE or L'Unione Cinematograpica Educative which was formed in 1924.

  • High Cost Of Film Prints

    History When the Lumiere Brothers' first films were shown at Bombay's Watson's Hotel in 1895 or when Dadasaheb Phalke released his epochal feature film Raja Harischandra in 1913, it is unlikely that either the exhibitors or the pioneer film maker realised they were unleashing a mass entertainment medium that would hold millions in sway for the next hundred years; that they were spawning an industry that in years to come would overtake the rest of the world in film production! For most Indians, c...

  • British Film Industry

    One of the many great exports from America is the film industry. The glitz and glamour of Hollywood which, incidentally has nothing to do with holly or wood and was purely the name of someone's summer home, seems to have a mass worldwide appeal.
