Tag: Babelsberg studios
Babelsberg and The Blue Angel. Revisit the Classic German Film Studio Era at Media City Babelsberg. It is certainly no secret that Berlin is a well-established film city. Approximately 300 new movies are made here every year. It is home to hundreds of film and television production companies, film and dubbing studios – dubbing being a big industry in Germany – and Berlin’s center for the cinematic arts at the Filmhaus on Potsdamer Platz which brings together the Film Museum of the German Film Archive Foundation and the German Film and Television Academy. And, of course, the annual Berlin International Film Festival, also known as the “Berlinale”, is one of the most prestigious film festivals in Europe and the world. But whenever making reference to film and Berlin, the nearby Babelsberg film studio in Potsdam is the real gem in the crown of German film making industry, both then and now.
