Welcome to CinemaWaves

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 created 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. Two years ago he decided to make the following list on Letterboxd, social networking platform for moviegoers, which became a success, and demonstrated there was an interest in the film community. In the summer of 2023, he launched CinemaWaves.
