About the databases

The German Early Cinema Databases contain data related to film supply, distribution, exhibition and reception in Germany between 1895 and 1926.

Please note that only very few of these films are extant, and that we do not have copies of the films themselves. For information on extant copies, please consult the FIAF database and the archives of the FIAF members.
