Contemporary thinkers offer intertextuality as the most important in order to study structure, aesthetics and semantic interpretation of film in film .

Intertextuality includes an unlimited area of multifarious and historically variable relations between works as heterogeneous textual productions .

Film in Film is very diverse and signifies abundant referential and connotative meanings. It could have any subject, or even fundamental function in the film narration. Film in Film, like and intertext, surveys situation of the film in the real world from filmmaker's point of view and organizes its influences on conditions of spectatorship.

This thesis intends to introduce a guideline in order to provide some ideas for viewing film in film consciously, focusing, in particular on the interaction between aesthetics and structure in relation to interpretation of intertextuality.
