The Global Film Industry: An Introduction

Swapna Gopalan (Author) Nasreen Taher (Author)

The entertainment industry is one of the largest of both the Indian and the US economies and is projected to become the most prominent, globally. Experiences of the global film industry are traced in this book right from the pre-war period, through the booms and recessions of the post-war period, detailing the evolution and success of the filmmaking industry from the 1800s to the 1990s, bringing the reader an understanding of cinema and the film industry across the globe. Globalization of the film industry was not a completely new phenomenon; by penetrating virtually every society, the international spread of cinema resulted in films becoming the first globalized medium. Globalization intensified greatly after the 1960s, based not on colonialism but on economic and social ties between countries. This book also focuses on issues such as funding, financial dilemmas, budgets, government intervention in funding and support, distribution, ancillary markets, with regard to the global film industry.
