The project generally considers all articles directly related to film to be within its scope, except that it does not include articles about actors, directors and filmmakers, which are within the scope of the Biography WikiProject and specifically the Actors and Filmmakers and Screenwriters projects.
Our primary work is concentrated in a number of broad areas:
Films and film series
Companies and organizations of note with a substantial relevance to films, including equipment suppliers, production companies, archives, institutes and educational facilities.
Film awards, including individual ceremonies, award categories, and winner or nominee lists.
Film festivals, including invididual instances and ancillary bodies.
Film equipment, technology, practice, and terminology.
Significant historical locations and structures primarily used for filmmaking or exhibition.
Film studies topics and notable film critics, theorists, and researchers.
Genres, types, movements and periods of film; the cinematic histories of particular nations, regions and groups.
As of 24 August 2023, there are 185,803 articles within the scope of WikiProject Film, of which 650 are featured and 1,379 are good articles. These articles have the ((WikiProject Film)) template on their talk page.
Style guide – Currently, this page only covers articles about individual films. We expect to create additional style guides in the near future for other types of film-related articles, in consultation with the relevant task forces.
Cleanup : Remove the ((WikiProject Film)) banner and/or any cinema parameters from the talk pages of ((WikiProject Biography)) articles. The parameter "|filmbio-work-group=yes" should be used instead for articles about actors and filmmakers.

The project coordinators are generally responsible for maintaining all of the procedural and administrative aspects of the project, and serve as the designated points-of-contact for procedural issues. They are not, however, endowed with any special executive powers, nor with any authority over article content or editor conduct.
The Lead Coordinator bears overall responsibility for coordinating the project; the Coordinators aid the Lead Coordinator and focus on specific areas that require special attention.

Assessment focuses on determining and tracking the quality of Wikipedia's film articles; the resulting statistics are used to aid in recognizing excellent contributions and identifying topics in need of further work.
Categorization acts as a central location for work on the category tree, including recommendations for hierarchy structuring, comments on categories for deletion, and general discussion about film categories.
Core identifies our core articles and provides a rough idea of how well covered these articles are. (Anyone who brings a core article to FA automatically earns a Film Award.)
Films based on books identifies articles which may require splitting the source material from the film adaptation into separate articles.
Future films monitors articles on unreleased films to check for notability, assist in sourcing, and compile a release schedule.
Missing films compiles lists of potentially notable films for which an article does not yet exist and sorts them by country and time period
Outreach acts as a central location for various member outreach work, including project newsletters, recruitment and welcoming banners, and other related initiatives.
Resources provides a guide to finding information for sourcing articles, whether through online/print sources or members' personal libraries.
Review conducts both informal peer reviews of articles and other content; it also provides a centralized forum for viewing external reviews (such as featured article candidacies) within the project's scope.
Spotlight displays positive contributions and accomplishments by the project as a whole, including featured content, DYKs (Did You Know?), A and GA-Class articles, and film barnstar winners.
WP Film operates many task forces. Task forces are informal groups of editors gathered for collaborative work on a particular topic within the subject of film. They afford the advantage of allowing editors to organize their efforts around a topic without having to expend time and energy organizing and duplicating the overall structure, style, and guidelines for a descendant WikiProject which would be completely or mostly covered by the Films project. All users are encouraged to participate in any that interest them.
Editors interested in creating task forces should look towards creating a task force with a medium-to-large number of articles within its scope, or consider a higher-level scope if this cannot be achieved. (For example, less productive national cinemas may be better served by creating a collective regional cinema task force instead.)
Task forces should also have aroused a significant number of potential participants to warrant organizational overhead. The project, via consensus on the discussion page, will determine if a task force is to be created.
(It should be noted that task forces created prior to July 1, 2007 were moved from independent WikiProjects and should thus be considered "grandfathered" in.)
The current ongoing drive at WikiProject Film is the improvement of the Stub-Class articles from the Core article list. The aim is to improve these articles to Start-Class or better. The drive began with the 2011 update of the list, at which time 106 Stub-class articles remained. The charts below illustrate the progress being made in this drive.
Stub-class core film articles improved to start-class or better: 90.6% complete
All core film articles at start-class or better: 98.1% complete
If you find, create or contribute to a film article, please paste ((WikiProject Film)) on the top of its discussion page with the appropriate parameters and add the article to the relevant lists within List of films. In addition, some parameters that can be pasted within the ((WikiProject Film)) template on the discussion page in order to request the addition of missing material are |needs-infobox=yes and |needs-image=yes.
