  • Partial Closing of the Archives

    With the exception of the Photo Archive, which will remain accessible  for all uses, the archives at the Deutsche Kinemathek will be closed from April 1, 2015 presumably until December 31, 2015 to allow for a restructuring of archival databases. Contracting parties will continue to have unhindered access to their materials.

  • Partial Closing of the Film Archive

    Due to a reorganization of our databases and a general inventory – required as a result of numerous moves between storage facilities – the Film Archive must reduce its services beginning on January 1, 2015, most likely until the end of 2015. Unfortunately, we will not be able to offer film screenings, excerpts, copying or digitalization services for either on-site or off-site users during this time period. We appreciate your understanding.

    Work being carried out within the context of the digitalization offensive supported by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media is not affected by these restrictions. Contracting parties and depositers will also continue to have unhindered access to their materials. Storage of copyright (legal) deposits provided in the course of film promotion will also be processed as usual. And film distribution to cinemas will be maintained.

    As of January 1, 2016, we will be available to you again with a considerably improved catalogue and our full range of services.

  • Correction to the Ken Adam Archive Online Presentation

    The online presentation of the Ken Adam Archive was not made public in May as originally announced, but will be published in fall 2015. The archive is far more extensive than originally estimated. It contains approximately 5,600 graphic objects, as well as video and sound recordings. For further information and the option to stay informed about this website’s launch: www.ken-adam-archiv.de.

    We are unable to process loan requests or respond to other inquiries addressed to the Ken Adam Archive until January 2016.
