Federal Association for Communal Film Work

The Federal Association for Communal Film Work is the umbrella organization of more than 160 communal German cinemas. Its primary function is to strengthen and represent the interests of its members, i.e. maintaining and promoting an independent and diverse film culture. In addition to PR activities the Association also coordinates the activities of its members thus making at all possible the demanding programmes that tour the various German cinemas. A further function is a Germany-wide activity day that presents a joint theme to the public. Lastly the Association awards two film prizes at the International Film Festival in Berlin: the Caligari Film Prize for stylistic and innovative contributions of the forum and the Liliput Film Prize for particularly successful (or unsuccessful) dubbings. Within the scope of its PR work the Association publishes the magazine "Kinema Kommunal", a medium that informs about the activities of programme cinemas and coordinates mutual interests. Furthermore the manual of cultural cinema work is meanwhile indispensable as it bundles important information on legal questions, PR activities, financing and cinema technology.
