Summary/Abstract: The test examines some of the most interesting examples of screen interpretations of the fairytale Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Modern digital technologies to a different extent assist in the development and better presentation of the film story. In some of the mass produced films it helps mainly in the advertising of novelties, greater 3-D scope and realism of the images. But the presence in interesting films where the technologies have a substantial and important role show the true role of dressing a good, well-known and loved by the audience story in a new, but well fitted and visually significant and effective packaging. And so the screen interpretations of well-known stories are different, richer (mainly visually and digitally) but basically it comes down to the constant struggle of good and evil, beauty and ugliness… And here of greatest importance is how exactly this struggle is being depicted. Whether the viewers’ interest will be limited to the technological parameters and possibilities of the new technique (or new versions of old techniques) or whether he will perceive them as an inseparable part of the interesting and amazing screen story, the rich film language and memorable images.
