Task 8

What is genre?

Genre refers to the 'type'/ 'class' of a film in the media industry.
The aim of genres is to categorise and organise  a large set of films into a small number of groups; which is a helpful way to inform an audience what the film is about.
Relating it to Altman's theory we can say that:

  • A micro approach of sub genres is semantic which is the way the film looks.
  • A macro approach is called synaptic which is what the story of the film tells.
