DFF Film Distribution

The DFF film distribution department offers both analog and digital distribution copies of films preserved in the DFF film archive, including numerous restorations. In addition to featuring classic German films from the silent era and early sound films, we proudly distribute important works from the post-war period, especially from the Federal Republic of Germany and the New German Cinema era. Our collection also includes notable international films.

The DFF has consistently expanded its film collection over the past few decades through various partnerships. It has acquired distribution rights and a significant number of distribution prints from KirchMedia, collaborated with Munich-based Prokino Film Distribution, Studiocanal, and Paramount to add contemporary German and European films, as well as international classics, to its collection. The primary focus here is on German, French, Italian, and contemporary American films.

The copies from the DFF’s distribution stock are primarily intended for loan to art-house and municipal cinemas, international film museums, festivals, and educational institutions, including universities.
