The basic thesis of Wittgenstein's late work Philosophical Investigations is the idea that the meaning of a word is its use in language. In this respect, meaning relations in any field of language usage cannot be resolved with reference to a certain fixed structure. From this point of view, the philosopher attempts to analyze the various forms of use of language in order to put forward this basic thesis in Philosophical Investigations. As a result of these attempts, basic concepts such as family resemblance, language games, and grammar that support the basic thesis of the philosopher emerge. Such an attempt, positioned methodically in the tradition of analytical philosophy, helps us to gain an overview against to language and meaning from the analysis of various forms of use of language. The aim of this study is to examine the relationships between film language and meaning with reference to language games theory. As a result of this examination, the answer to the question of whether there is a fixed structure of the film language and the concepts that affect the film language in terms of meaning will necessarily appear.
