Film Archive

The film archive comprises nearly 900 film prints of different kinds and genres. Depictions of German history have always been the main focal point of the collection practice and will remain so in the future. The films include German and international productions from the 1910s to the present day. Most of them are in the original language and are either 35 mm or 16 mm copies.

Films from the collection are regularly presented in the Deutsches Historisches Museum’s Zeughauskino. Some of the film archive’s prints are also available for screenings in other cinemas.

The collection continues to be expanded through purchases and donations.
