Films. Everyone watches them. Everyone enjoys them. From psychological thrillers to rom-coms, film is a part of everyday life and the industry is developing and growing every single day. This results in the massive influence that film has on today’s society. Society is reflected in movies and in turn movies influence society by changes in representations, challenging audience’s morals and transforming viewers’ opinions. Despite the huge impact film has on today’s generation, people still think that film is not a form of art, wanting to work in the film industry is stupid and getting a degree/studying film studies or production is a waste of time and is disrespected in schools/unis.

As a student who wants to work in the film industry, I know first-hand how hard it can be to tell people you want to work in film.  A year ago if a teacher, family member or relative questioned me on what I wanted to do when I left college/sixth form, I’d reply with ‘I don’t know’ or ‘I’m not sure’ due to fear of embarrassment. When I had told people before, they would reply with ‘that’s not a proper job’ or ‘you’ll never make it.’

Movies can create awareness about the importance of education, art, sports and politics and can also warn us about the dangers of drugs, alcohol and other criminal activities. It also brings us to understand more about other cultures, the atrocity of living homeless, and the countries who are in constant battle with war and terrorism. All these movie genres help awaken our sense of responsibly and empathy towards such situations. These socially enlightening movies help us understand the world and influences our thought process in a positive way and helps us try to do our bit in order to be of some help to humanity for example helping/donating to charities. In addition, films make our imaginations run wild. After finishing a movie, we think about the characters and the story and develop it further, maybe even thinking about what the characters would be doing after the movie finished. This develops our creativity and leads to writers producing Fanfiction and artists producing Fan art and sharing it with social media sites.
