The Complete Film Dictionary has been entirely updated and enlarged, with more than five hundred new entries and forty new illustrations. This new edition covers all of the latest advances in filmmaking, including the tremendous impact of the digital revolution, as well as the many changes that have taken place in the industry as the art, economics, and technology of film interact with other media and the marketplace.

Detailing developments in the film industry from the invention of photography in the 1830s up to the present -- from A&B Printing to censorship to neorealism to Zoptic System -- The Complete Film Dictionary is a highly readable reference work for film history, technique, and theory, as well as for film's technical, technological, and financial aspects.
