60 years after Arsenal was founded, the collection gives exemplary insights into our institution’s work, taking in both avant-garde and political cinema as well as the diversity of contemporary filmmaking. The collection encompasses features and documentaries as well as works of film and video art. Many of these titles were taken from the Berlinale Forum and Forum Expanded programs. Arsenal Distribution distributes the films to cinemas, festivals, museums, galleries, universities and other cultural institutions in Germany and beyond. Since 2015, films from the archive have also been digitally restored and newly released.
