FILM HISTORY

This page gives a historical timeline through the history of the cinema. Unlike other parts of this site that were specifically limited to English films, I've included countries such as France, Japan, India, China, and Iran, to show how they have effected each other and the medium of film itself. Although, still heavily based on Hollywood events, I hope to include more world cinema history, along with images as I continue to expand this page. I believe this will become an important reference in the coming years.
