A conference venue with unique film history
Back in 1911, it all started with an old paper flower factory, discovered and transformed into the world’s first large-scale film studio by the film pioneer Guido Seeber. Today, five political
systems later, Babelsberg is the leading European centre for filmmaking technology.
More than 4.000 films have been produced in the Babelsberg Studios since the first production of The Dance of Death in 1912; meanwhile that first studio building is easy to miss among the
many new film and TV studios and outdoor sets.
Fritz Lang and Marlene Dietrich, Steven Spielberg and Quentin Tarantino, and, most recently, Lana Wachowski and Baran bo Odar have all found a creative home in Babelsberg – and they won't be the
last to use this iconic film location.
