Digitisation of German film heritage


The goal of this task - entrusted with the FFA since 2012 - is to ensure that the most important films of German film history are also accessible to a wide audience in the future. The FFA‘s funding addresses films which can be considered part of the national cinematic heritage and are film historically and artistically of special value.

Applications are accepted from those holding the German rights of the film. A plausible and detailed exploitation concept must be submitted together with the application. Each digitisation is funded with a maximum 30,000 Euros, in exceptional cases up to 50,000 €, and the applicant is required to provide evidence of their own contribution of at least 20%.

The applications may be submitted informally and at any time; however, funding is limited to a maximum of ten films per applicant and year. The applicants are processed according to the date of receipt.
