Deutsche Kinemathek

January 2010 · Links

The Deutsche Kinemathek officially opened in February 1963. Its founding director, Gerhard Lamprecht, over the decades had meticulously put together an extensive collection of films, documents and equipment. Since its establishment, the Deutsche Kinemathek has indexed everything related to film history and technology, cinema and, to a certain extent, television: film prints as well as other items indispensable for research on film history, e.g. film programmes, posters, drawings for set designs and costumes, photos, scripts, personal estates and other documents.
