Regarded as the undisputed Bible of the movie industry, Ephraim Katz’s The Film Encyclopedia is the most comprehensive one-volume encyclopedia on film available. This all new seventh edition includes up-to-date additions, and features more than 8,000 A-Z entries on the artistic, technical, and commercial aspects of moviemaking, including: • Directors, producers, stars, screenwriters, and cinematographers • Styles, genres, and schools of filmmaking • Motion picture studios and film centers • Film-related organizations and events • Industry jargon and technical terms • Inventions, inventors, and equipment • Plus, an index of Academy Award winning films and artists, top grossing films, and much, much more. The editors have updated every single page, giving more thorough coverage to independent films, and adding new entries for all the latest stars and trends, from Sofia Coppola (director, Lost in Translation, The Virgin Suicides) to Johnny Depp (Oscar nomination for Pirates of the Caribbean) to The Lord of the Rings trilogy (Return of the King won a record-tying eleven Oscars). With the abundance of movies available through standard and electronic channels, this is the essential sourcebook every film buff, student, aspiring artist, and armchair movie lover needs.
