Film Genres

Here are some interesting sites on film genres:

Main film genres and Film Sub-genres by Tim Dirks, a similar site is KnowledgeRush and this Movie Genres Chart provides examples of 14 basic film genres.

This site is really useful: Categorizing film genres, as well as this article on Genre Analysis.

This wiki article is quite nice, as it allows you to navigate different genres on the right and you can research themes, imagery, visual elements, etc of these different genres – please remember not to quote Wikipedia in essays, treat it as a starting point.
