English term or phrase: appeal to the process of encountering that narrative
Thus any attempt to differentiate the tense of film narrative from that of fiction narrative cannot rest on an appeal to the process of encountering that narrative.
discourse
English translation:explaination...
Explanation:
academic writing at its worst... ;-)

Jumping into this sentence, I would propose that "appeal" here refers to an argument that has just been made. Someone has argued/written that in order to distinguish the differences between film and literary narrative (simply put), that one should look at how such narratives are encountered. This statement says that this approach is not sufficient.

Of course, as Ruth pointed out, whether/how this appeal was presented (if at all, perhaps this is just being discussed hypothetically) is unknown without more of the text.
