Emylee, i think you are using the word "film" to refer to video. Film means several things. The word film in still photography and on this stack exchange refers to the physical product of photographic film.
Before digital cameras, photos were captured on film. ( and before that, glass plates )
Before video tape movies were recorded on photographic film. That is why some old timers like me refer to movies as a film.
I.E. lets go catch a film at the theater or i would like to make a film.
I would recommend getting a camera that has full manual control, take a class at school or apprentice with local photographer and learn to use your camera with manual settings so you will have a solid understanding of how a camera works and how light behaves and how to capture it.
Photography is the art of capturing light and the best photographers understand light, how to see it, how cameras see it and record it, how to manipulate light for the best photos or how to express your artistic vision.
