The German Film Museum presents new multimedia guide

The German Film Museum is heading towards the future! After a development phase of around three years, the new multimedia guide has now been presented, which is intended to make a visit to the exhibition at the Film Museum even more exciting and multi-faceted. In a model project, the electronic guide was developed by around 50 children and young people with the aim of making the subject of film even more accessible to young, but also older museum visitors in the future. The young people determined the essential content of the guide and developed contributions for its main target group - children, young people and families - on the exhibits they had selected for the permanent exhibition. This change of perspective was not only essential for the development of the guide itself, but the museum was also able to draw important conclusions for future film education formats. What interests children and young people in the Film Museum, especially in its permanent exhibition? For this purpose, the adolescents in three age groups each explored the museum over a period of six months and researched various topics.

From Saturday, September 2, visitors to the guide can explore the subject of film, its history and linguistic means with many interviews, audio clips, film excerpts, photos and playful approaches. The contributions of the young museum researchers are varied: the first group, 22 fourth-graders between the ages of nine and ten from the Günderrode School in Frankfurt's Gallus district, explored what goes on behind the scenes of a museum. They conducted interviews with various staff members of the museum, with archive managers, the house technician, the projectionist and the director, which can be seen as short film clips on the guide.

The second group, eleven 16- to 18-year-olds, among them Diesterweg scholarship holders from the Stiftung Polytechnische Gesellschaft Frankfurt am Main, spent several project days during the school holidays examining the exhibits in Permanent Exhibition II, where the focus is on cinematic storytelling and cinematic linguistic devices. They researched background material on exhibits they had selected, such as the Alien stunt costume, the Darth Vader helmet or the dress worn by Barbara Sukowa in Rainer Werner Fassbinder's LOLA (BRD 1981). They summarized the results in short texts. Small, self-recorded films finally introduce the exhibits on the guide.
