Film Terms - In order to learn anything about the cinema, it is crucial that you understand some of the basic language used by filmmakers, critics, and very often both. Any student enrolled in any film course at Salisbury University (whether you are in the film concentration or not) should familiarize themselves with these terms.

The Internet Movie Database - Are you wondering how to spell a director's name, or what year a film was released? Consult the Internet Movie Database for this information and more.
