Temporary Closing of the Film Archive and Film Distribution Services

The Film Archive and Film Distribution Service will be closed from July 1 – September 30, 2018, due to extensive inventorization and related work on the archives and film distribution collections. During this period we will not be able to offer a number of regular services to either in-house or outside users, including the loan of copies, screenings, film excerpts, copying and digitization. Replies to inquiries and requests will be subject to much longer delays. Requests for copies and materials for use during the temporary closing period must be submitted by June 1st so that they can be processed before the archives close.

Exceptions to this closing: The DEFA Film Distribution Service will maintain its services without restrictions.
