Periodicals

Periodicals (yellow shelfmarks) are non-circulating and so cannot be checked out.

They are indexed alphabetically by country, using the abbreviations set up by the FIAF (Fédération Internationale des Archives du Film / International Federation of Film Archives).

At present we have subscriptions to 150 German and international film periodicals (pdf). The periodical holdings contain 3,800 different titles in all (pdf). They are currently only indexed by title and shelfmark.

In addition, a part of our periodical holdings can be accessed by using the periodicals database Zeitschriftendatenbank (ZDB).

To search for an article from a periodical, you can use the on-site FIAF database “International Index to Film and Television Periodicals”. It lists the sources of important international film periodicals from 1972 on (FIAF Journal List); most of these are to be found in our holdings.

The most important German film periodicals as well as some English film periodicals from before 1945 are available on microfilm (pdf).

To use our microfilm reader printer or our scanner with its memory function, please make an appointment by calling: +49-30-300 903-652 or +49-30-300 903-73 or by e-mailing us at bibliothek@deutsche-kinemathek.de.
A DIN A4 microfilm print costs 0.20 euro. There is no charge for saving it on your memory stick.
