German Film Academy / Cinematheque – archive

In occasion of the 50th jubilee of the German Film- and TV Academy (DFFB) the Deutsche Kinemathek (German Cinematheque) has released an extensive online-archive with films, pictures and documents. In addition some texts by film-scientists focus on main topics (sorry, only in German-language available!)

Uli M Schueppel studied at the DFFB between 1984 to 1989. In an interesting article by Ralph Eue  „Works between Film, Video and Music 1978-88“ the development from Christoph Dreher, to Peter Braatz, to Uli M Schueppel in the academy-history can be followed, „in which the filmmakers- and musician-milieus mingle in a massiv and enthusiastic way“.


Uli M Schueppel will tutor again at the German Film Academy from May to August 2016.
