What is Cineveillant?
We have coined the term "cineveillant" to describe films that utilise the tropes of surveillance in their storytelling.
We identify the cineveillant as an expanding sub-genre of films that reference the surveillance that we all experience in our everyday lives - be it the consensual surveillance of social media or the non-consensual surveillance of CCTV.
Cineveillant films employ the grammar of surveillance as more than just Hollywood spectacle. They explore the societal and psychological implications of being watched.
The slate of cineveillant films is diverse and dates back to the origins of cinema. Some cineveillant works make no direct reference to surveillance in their narratives but employ surveillance vocabulary in their visual storytelling.
