beginning of film

From the movie I learned that film started in the late 1880's with the invention of the first movie camera. Motion pictures were initially exhibited as a carnival novelty and developed to one of the most important tools of communication and entertainment, and mass media in the 20th century and into the 21st century. Most films before 1930 were silent. Motion picture films have substantially affected the arts, technology, and politics. Movies became the most popular visual art form of the late Victorian age. During the first decade of the cinema's existence, inventors worked to improve the machines for making and showing films.
