This article describes an open concept map-based hypermedia system for film analysis and film teaching (direction, narration...). It uses concept maps as navigational and conceptual structure for non-linear access and flexible interaction on multimedia materials for film analysis or study. Cmaps and Hypermedia fit very well the objectives of this project they allow for the exploration of new ways of analyzing films, as well as an active film watching and new ways of film appreciation, which might be seen as the equivalent for films of an individual, customized class in a museum to appreciate masterworks paintings from the past. The methodological model and the demonstration and evaluation prototype being built are described in the paper. The impressive set of semiprofessional facilities commonly available today (concept map software, films in DVD, hypermedia tools, free or affordable DVD software on PC, etc.) makes it possible a new way of appreciating the film masterpieces as they drew and defined the language of motion pictures near perfection.
