Abstract: In broad terms, the literature review on management education courses points out the positive effects of films to complete, or even substitute, traditional face-to-face lectures. However, few authors have reported the use of films to teach entrepreneurship. This paper tries to solve this lack of information by presenting and classifying a list of 45 feature films suitable to teach and educate entrepreneurship. The pedagogical methodology appropriate to effectively use films as an instructional material is also presented.

Keywords: higher education; entrepreneurship education; films; film learning sequences; lecturing; teaching; instructional material.
