Studio Babelsberg is a strong supporter of the German film industry and offers a first-rate production environment to German film and television producers.
By applying for funds from reference subsidies, Studio Babelsberg can co-produce and thus help to finance German productions.
Such reference funds generated from international box-office and festival successes like The Reader or The Ghost Writer were used in the past to support German films, including Oscar-winning The Counterfeiters, Five Years, Lilly the Witch - The Journey to Mandolan, as well as European productions like Black Book, or recently Beauty and the Beast.
Today, the world’s oldest large-scale film studio is one of the leading service providers in film and television production, offering Europe’s largest studio complex (including 300,000 sq ft of stage space and a 4.7 acre backlot at one convenient location), internationally renowned production services through Studio Babelsberg Motion Pictures, and first-rate set construction services through Studio Babelsberg Art Department.
Our costume, make-up und props shops each include expansive rental departments, workshops to manufacture individual designs, a library of historic reference material, information on the newest trends and a team of specialists who see your project through production, regardless of scope and complexity. Our Art Department offers a unique set of services, unparalleled in Europe.
Through our extensive services, highest technical standards and the great experience of our team of specialists, we can guarantee an efficient workflow, cost-efficient production and highest quality.
In the past years, various divisions of Studio Babelsberg helped to produce such exceptional German films as Good Bye, Lenin!, Berlin Blues, Paths in the Night, Sonnenallee, Dresden, and the Oscar-winning films The Lives of Others and The Counterfeiters.
