Maintenance film

under a maintenance film one understands a fiktionalen film (z. B. a feature or an animated film), which is put on rather on maintenance as on instruction , forming of an opinion or Indoktrination.

A scientific application finds the term particularly in the LV film research, where beside notorious propaganda films also such films belong to the investigation article, in a political or ideological content to be hardly proven can.

Is common the use of the term „maintenance film “beside it in addition, in the film criticism, where it usually for marking and/or. Branding “more easily” - D. h. contentwise and formally more undemandingly - features one uses, which are not sufficient for a high quality standard. Since here however less the maintenance SAMness is complained of of „maintenance films “than rather their artistic quality lacking, this linguistic usage is doubtful.
