The aim and purpose of the Arsenal Institute for Film and Video Art is to share and appreciate international film culture: At the interface between theory and practice, Arsenal provides a space for thinking creatively about film and for broader culture.
In the movie theater we focus on independent and experimental filmmaking and, as an interconnected platform for communication, we promote dynamic interaction between film, study and art.
The program on offer includes international film weeks, retrospectives and tributes, classics of film history, seminars and symposiums and premieres with directors and producers.
There’s nothing like the original, neither in real life nor in the magical world of cinema: On eight screens featuring innovative sound- and projection-technology the CineStar Original at the Sony Center offers Germany's widest choice of original language films in 2D and 3D. It is the cosmopolitan heart of Berlin's cinematographic scene.
Located in the Sony Center’s unique architecture, CineStar Original equally fascinates moviegoers and filmmakers: Big Hollywood stars like Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie and Robert Pattinson regularly celebrate their film premieres in this spectacular venue.
At the Filmhaus a cineaste gets his money´s worth. The house at Potsdamer Strasse unites underneath its roof historical and trend-setting themes around films. In suspenseful exhibitions film and television history become alive.
At Kino Arsenal one can watch highlights of film history, but also current films. Film students frequent the Filmhaus every day. The German Academy for Film and Television (dffb), one of the leading film training colleges, qualify filmmakers of tomorrow.
CineStar IMAX located in the glamorous scenery of Berlin’s 'Sony Center am Potsdamer Platz' is a true entertainment experience – so real you feel it in your bones and so all-encompassing you feel like you’re inside the action, not just watching it.
Berlin’s largest screen at CineStar IMAX is also curved, taller for its width and positioned closer to the audience than ordinary screens. The result provides you with a full panoramic view that fills your peripheral vision more than any other cinematic experience. That’s why, when you watch an IMAX movie, it feels like it’s all around you.
Enjoy the world’s best 3D technology and the heart-thumping sound system and see brand-new movie highlights as well as documentaries: Experience the IMAX magic in a luxuriously furnished theatre with leather chairs and stadium seating.
The Deutsche Kinemathek presents its important collections on film history in the Filmhaus at Potsdamer Platz.
In addition the Deutsche Kinemathek is responsible for the Retrospective section of the Berlinale, and puts on special exhibitions, film series, colloquia and other events.
The Deutsche Film- und Fernsehakademie Berlin (the German Film and Television Academy Berlin) was created in 1966 and is one of the most prestigious and oldest film academies in Germany. Its alumni include Wolfgang Petersen, Helke Sander, Wolfgang Becker, Christian Petzold, Detlev Buck, Thomas Arslan and Chris Kraus.
The training offered to students by the DFFB with its relatively limited budget balances teaching the artistic dimensions of filmmaking with understanding the financial and technical production requirements imposed by the market.
The DFFB focuses on teaching the four basic fields of filmmaking: screenplay, directing, camera and production. No more than 34 students are admitted each year. The DFFB particularly emphasizes the importance of students developing their own signature in their own field of work during their course, which will be important for them later in the film and television market.
