|Years in film|
The decade of the 1990s in film involved many significant films.
- Thousands of full-length films were produced during the 1990s.
- Many films were specifically filmed or edited to be displayed both on theater screens as well as on the smaller TV screens, such as showing close-up scenes during dialog, rather than just wide-angle scenes in a room.
- The 1990s were notable in both the rise of independent cinema – as well as independent studios such as Miramax, Lions Gate, and New Line – and the advancements in CGI-technology, seen in such films as Jurassic Park, Forrest Gump, Twister, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, and Titanic.
- The Disney Renaissance began in 1989 with The Little Mermaid, reached the peak in popularity with The Lion King in 1994, and ended in 1999 with Tarzan.
- The home-video market became a major factor in total revenue for a film, often doubling the total income for a film.
