cinefest - Internationales Festival des deutschen Film-Erbes cf-Logo

In close collaboration with international scholars and archives, CineGraph and Bundesarchiv have developed a new concept for their traditional conference, expanding it into a Festival of German Film Heritage.

Apart from exploring new and forgotten areas of film history, the festival will provide a prominent showcase for archives which preserve and restore the treasures of German Cinema. The aim is also to create a forum for academics, students, archivists, technicians and film buffs to exchange information and discuss new developments.

An extensive retrospective looking at key aspects of the history of film in Germany will be combined with workshops and conference sessions, allowing guests to see and discuss rare films from German and international archives.

Integrated in the festival in Hamburg is the International Film History Conference.

Local partner of CineFest in Hamburg is the Kinemathek Hamburg e.V.

After the event in Hamburg, parts of the film programme will also be shown in Berlin, Wiesbaden, Prague, Vienna and Zurich. Our partners there are Zeughauskino of the German Historical Museum in Berlin, Friedrich-Wilhelm-Murnau-Stiftung in Wiesbaden, Národní Filmový Archiv in Prague, FilmForum in Udine/Gorizia, Filmarchiv Austria in Vienna and Filmpodium Zürich and Cinémathèque Suisse.
