In 2024, German Films celebrates its 70 years anniversary! The Export Union der Deutschen Filmindustrie was founded in Wiesbaden in 1954, then underwent a renaming as German Films Service + Marketing GmbH in 2004 and has successfully been promoting German feature films and filmmakers around the world for the past 70 years.

To put a special focus on 70 years of German cinema abroad, a film programme entitled “70 Years of German Cinema – A Success Story“ has been compiled as a retrospective, curated by Alfred Holighaus, development executive and producer at REAL FILM in Berlin and NORDFILM in Kiel, who selected a mixture of 14 feature films and documentaries. The aim of this film programme is to give German cinema abroad the special attention it so rightly deserves.
