The history of film is the historical development of the medium known variously as cinema, motion pictures, film, or the movies. [1]

The history of film spans over a hundred years, from the latter part of the 19th century to the present day. Motion pictures developed gradually from a carnival novelty to one of the most important tools of communication and entertainment, and mass media in the 20th century and into the 21st century. Motion picture films have had a substantial impact on the arts, technology, and politics.[citation needed]
