What Is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is a broad term that encompasses many different industries and types of entertainment. You might see it abbreviated as entmt on a flier or in industry news publications, but you won’t find it widely used outside of those contexts.

Stories have the ability to inspire a wide range of media, and they’re often the basis for entertainment across various platforms. For example, the famous story of Scheherazade, a character from the Persian professional storytelling tradition, inspired composers to create orchestral works; director Pasolini made a film adaptation; and innovative video games have been built around the tale. These cross-media connections are one reason why entertainment is such a popular form of leisure.
