As the seventh art, film plays an irreplaceable role in cross-cultural communication. The visual nature of films enables different cultures to communicate and disseminate, and the clash and fusion of different cultures are realized through visualized conflicts.With the acceleration of globalisation, film, as an important cultural communication medium, plays an increasingly important role in promoting cross-cultural communication among different countries and regions. Intercultural communication is based on cultural heritage and roots, and is the exchange and collision between cultures, reflecting the essence and core of intercultural communication in film. Intercultural communication has a pivotal influence in the film industry, promoting the universality and sociality of film culture and enhancing the innovation and creativity of films. Intercultural communication films are critical and diverse, which can lead the audience to think more comprehensively about the importance and necessity of film communication theory.
