Welcome to CinemaWaves
an online destination for exploring the ever-evolving world of film movements and their profound impact on the art of filmmaking
CinemaWaves was founded with the goal of fostering a greater awareness of the numerous artistic trends, movements and waves in cinema. Our mission is to provide film enthusiasts, students, and professionals with a comprehensive platform dedicated to the exploration and appreciation of cinematic movements throughout history.
An ongoing project, CinemaWaves was published by Milan Dujic, film enthusiast for more than ten years and a film critic. The inspiration for this project originated with the lack of complete, detailed and concise list or a website, with all the film movements. Three years ago he decided to create the following list on Letterboxd, social networking platform for moviegoers, which became a success, and demonstrated there was an interest in the film community. CinemaWaves website was lunched in the summer of 2023.
The images and GIFs featured here are solely used for educational purposes to represent the cinematic movements they are associated with. These images are utilized to provide visual context and critical commentary regarding the work, product, or service in question. Additionally, it is firmly believed that the use of these images to identify a film or movement will not diminish the copyright holder's capacity to derive profit from the original work.
The articles written on this website are not intended for scientific or academic purposes. Instead, they reflects the collective thoughts of the general consciousness, serving as an introductory exploration, a guide to major film movements, influenced by numerous books, articles and films encountered over a decade-long study of the seventh art form.
