Explore the Deutsche Kinemathek on your university or college trip to Berlin.

The Deutsche Kinemathek is Berlin's iconic Film Museum, featuring a permanent exhibition of German film history. This includes the stories of the many artists who were exiled to Hollywood during the National Socialist era.

Their diverse collection of exhibits also include posters, photos, costumes, architectural sketches and props, as well as a particular focus on actress Marlene Dietrich, compiled from an extensive private collection.

The permanent exhibition focuses on its two defining streams of media, film and television. This focuses on the history of film in its entirety, ranging from an 1895 newspaper advertisement, to exhibits representing the most recent winners of the German Film Prize.

The museum also has a library featuring extensive collections of literature and film journals, including important early magazines like The Cinematograph, the photo-stage and the Film-Kurier.
