From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Feature length is a film term that refers to the length of a feature film. The definition of minimum length varies from 40 minutes (Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences rule) to about 90 minutes (the definition in Cambridge Dictionaries Online). In the silent film era the feature length of a film could also be denoted in reels since a reel of film usually comprised about 10 minutes. Thus a two-reeler would be a short film of 20 minutes (usually a comedy) while a six-reeler would be a feature of 60 minutes or more.

This term may also be applied to non-feature films with the minimum length, such as television movies and direct-to-video releases.

Feature length can also be used to describe an episode of a TV series that has been extended to the length of a feature film. Such "feature length" episodes are usually series pilots, holiday specials or season finales.
