For nearly two months the Filmmuseum on the banks of the Main was closed, now it may finally continue: The DFF - Deutsches Filminstitut & Filmmuseum will be allowed to reopen its exhibitions on Thursday, May 7. Of course, the recommended distance and hygiene rules must be observed here as well. Then nothing will stand in the way of experiencing the two parts of the permanent exhibition, "Filmic Seeing" and "Filmic Storytelling" as well as the special exhibition MAXIMILIAN SCHELL, which has been extended until the end of June.
However, it should be noted that there will still be some restrictions until further notice. For example, interactive stations must remain closed to minimize the risk of infection. And also the cinema can not yet resume its operation.
In the special exhibition, however, there are two interactive stations that can still be used by those visitors who bring their own smartphone and headphones. The content can then be activated using a QR code.
In the course of July, the third floor will be converted for the exhibition "THE SOUND OF DISNEY. 1928 - 1967", which will be on view from Friday, August 7, 2020 through Sunday, January 10, 2021. This exhibition is also heavy on interactive stations, but visitors can use them via QR code if they have their own smartphone and bring their own headphones.
Important: Masks must also be worn at the DFF during the Corona Crisis. Basic masks are available for sale at the ticket office. Regular hand hygiene is mandatory, as is keeping a distance of 1.5 to two meters from people who are not part of one's household. The DFF follows the hygiene regulations of the city of Frankfurt, which do not allow more than one person per 20 square metres of space in museums. Therefore, about 20 people per exhibition floor can explore the exhibits in the DFF at the same time, which is about 60 in the three exhibition floors. The DFF will provide loaner cotton gloves that will be cleaned after each use.
The opening hours of the DFF have been changed slightly. For starters, there will no longer be a late opening on Friday, so it will be open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The DFF's museum shop, with many interesting offers, such as currently the companion volume to the Maximilian Schell exhibition, will also be open to visitors again in the future.
