The Importance of Fair Play in Sport Films
Sports movies are more popular today than ever before. Fans of different sports watch these films either to relax with or enhance their knowledge and enjoyment of a particular sport. The audience of sports movies consists of both die-hard fans of the sport and viewers who simply enjoy the entertainment value of watching a sports film. Many sports films today try to combine the multiple aspects of sports into one movie. For example, an action-packed drama about a sports team is made into a drama series, while a comedy about a star player is made into a sports film starring the star player.
A sports film can be loosely defined as a fictional film that focuses on a specific sport or player from a given country that is based around a particular sport. A sports film can either be produced by a local production company or it can be produced by a major Hollywood production company. International sports film festivals are held annually to celebrate the most famous sports throughout the world. In recent years, more attention has been paid to non-traditional sports such as fencing and table tennis. A feature documentary about the history of the sport of fencing was recently made available on DVD, to mark the 20th anniversary of the first Olympic Games in modern history.
