The German Film Museum - founded in 1978 and opened in June 1984 - is dedicated to the medium of film, whose history and present, aesthetics and impact it presents in a variety of ways. The importance of the medium film, cinema history and milestones of international film are of course appreciated here. The German Film Museum would also like to bring film practice closer to its visitors. Especially for younger visitors, there are regular workshops and offers that teach the craft of filmmaking.
In the beautiful permanent exhibition there are several exhibits that make the heart of every film lover beat faster. Among them for example the mask of Darth Vader or an elaborately restored ALIEN. In addition to the exciting exhibits, operable models of historical equipment or interactive media stations will also be on display on around 800 square metres. All this, as well as the large film projections, make it possible to experience the fascination of the medium of film in this part of the museum alone.
Jointly for young film lovers, there are great workshops and other opportunities to learn more about the making of films or to make an animated film yourself.
The special exhibitions, mostly conceived in a very original way, round off the offer. In addition to film classics, the in-house cinema presents the entire spectrum of artistically significant film productions. And it is not only worthwhile for cineastes to take a look at the museum shop, which is currently well stocked with literature.
Integrated into the Deutsches Filminstitut with its collections, archives and scientific projects, the museum offers a place for an intensive examination of the moving image.
