在跨文化交际中,文化定型是不可避免的,是普遍存在的。只有对定型对象的文化有真实、直观的接触和感受,才能建立客观和正确的文化定型。然而让每一个人都出国亲身感受外国文化是不现实的。 影视作品作为一种无可比拟的文化载体,在各国发展迅速,它可使某一文化得到充分、多方面的展示,使这一社会的文化生活、价值观念和道德标准得到全面的反映。如今影视作品已深入人们生活的各个方面。这些影视作品极大地影响着文化定型,对于打破旧的文化定型和建立新的文化定型有着及其重大的意义。在研究了影视作品对于文化定性的巨大作用后,可以利用其促进形成积极的文化定型。这对于改变西方世界对中国建立起的错误的文化定型,促进中国形象转变有着不可替代的作用。
