Expert in Chinese? No.

But I think I know a little about researching a domain.

Not the most popular version, I think.

More popular:

電影 (trad)
电影 (simpl)

Like Fab, no expert, just experienced at identifying the good stuff

I think [影片] is Film;
sometimes [影片] also means Movie

but -

電影 (trad)
电影 (simpl)

used normally



and I suggest to keep it.

Re: Help needed: is 影片 = movie ?

Don't forget to put Chinese in quotes before you check it at google...

++"影片"

That knocks it down to 50mm

Yes, it's film, a somewhat industry term, like used in awards, e.g. best film award, 最佳影片将
