Film Abbreviations

A film is a series of images projected in rapid succession, making it possible to capture movement. Since 1895, the film has been seen as public entertainment.

A film consists of many separate, consecutively placed still images. Due to the speed with which the images are projected and because of the after-effects of each image on the retina of your eye, the images appear to flow smoothly and the images appear to form a continuous movement. The year in which the film was used as public entertainment is 1895. In that year the first film was shown: ‘La sortie des usines Lumière'; of the Lumiere brothers. In that year the film was also shown for the first time against payment: the beginning of the cinema films. The film industry started with black and white films without sound, the so-called silent films. Later came the sound film (1926) and the color film (1915). A film director directs the film and the film product takes care of the production.

Film – The first film in A. was shown in the Kalverstraat 220 building (close to the Plaza cinema*, which had disappeared due to fire) on Thursday evening 12 Mar. 1896. This was not done by the Lumière brothers, but with the Cinematograph invented by them by the Société de la Photographie Animée in Brussels. This société continued the performances until May 31, 1896.
