It presents the reasons and needs for using authentic movie dialogs together with the findings about their linguistic similarity with face-to-face conversation obtained through var- ious multi- dimensional analyses and corpus-driven criteria. Then, with these premises in mind, the AMC is described by illustrating its origins, characteristics and corpus building criteria.
