Films by genre, c1993 (fictional film; UF dramatic-narrative film, fiction film, fictive film; the fictional film -- film drama, film play, screen drama, screenplay, or story film as it has sometimes been called -- is a film in which actors perform in front of a camera to create fictitious situations or tell an invented story with the purpose of showing it to an audience; hence the terms entertainment film, theatrical film, and feature film have also been used with analogous meaning; fictional film or fiction film stands in opposition to factual or documentary film)
Konigsberg, I. The complete film dictionary, 1997 (narrative film. Any film that tells a story; also called a fiction film, a dramatic film, a theatrical film, and a feature film. Though a number of documentaries have a simple narrative line embedded within them and some seem to tell stories, the term "narrative film" applies to those works that emphasize the story line, are dramatic in nature, and are fictional.)
