Here are all the possible meanings and translations of the word film at 11.


  1. Film at 11

    The idiom "Film at 11" originates from television news broadcasting. Traditionally, it follows a promotion aired earlier in the evening for a particular story to be detailed on a later local news broadcast at 11 p.m., a traditional timeslot for local news broadcasts in the Eastern and Pacific time zones of the United States. The phrase itself is now obsolete, since videotape has replaced film as the medium of choice for news reporting.

The New Hacker's Dictionary

  1. film at 11

    [MIT: in parody of TV newscasters] 1. Used in conversation to announce ordinary events, with a sarcastic implication that these events are earth-shattering. “ITS crashes; film at 11.” “Bug found in scheduler; film at 11.” 2. Also widely used outside MIT to indicate that additional information will be available at some future time, without the implication of anything particularly ordinary about the referenced event. For example, “The mail file server died this morning; we found garbage all over the root directory. Film at 11.” would indicate that a major failure had occurred but that the people working on it have no additional information about it as yet; use of the phrase in this way suggests gently that the problem is liable to be fixed more quickly if the people doing the fixing can spend time doing the fixing rather than responding to questions, the answers to which will appear on the normal “11:00 news”, if people will just be patient.The variant “MPEGs at 11” has recently been cited (MPEG is a digital-video format.)
