This question already has an answer here:

I need a word that you would use that encompasses all tree of literature, movies, and books. I'm doing an art project and the theme is “words I like”, and I want a word that you can say and it includes all three. I've already thought of Fine Arts or the Arts, but I don't think that works.

As mentioned in a comment, "fiction" can fit but it doesn't include documentaries, technical books, biographies, etc.

I suggest "fictional arts" (movies, theater, literature)


"Literature, movies and books" tell stories. I think that's the main commonality. Narrative and storytelling speak directly to that concept.
