Our Commitment

As a company with a long tradition we are aware of our social and cultural responsibility. Studio Babelsberg’s multifaceted corporate commitment focuses on supporting young talents and upcoming filmmakers.

Studio Babelsberg partners with the Film University “Konrad Wolf” and the Babelsberger Filmgymnasium. We work closely with both institutions in the fields of education as well as on events and student projects to improve our local commitment.

We are co-initiators of STARTBÜRO Babelsberg, which since 2015 has been supporting outstanding film projects of the graduates from the Film University "Konrad Wolf" with one-year scholarships. The winning teams enjoy the benefits of free co-working space at the Marlene-Dietrich-Halle on the lot, financial support as well as our professional advice and mentoring during the scholarship.

We support the film festival sehsüchte, the largest international student film festival in Europe and meeting point for upcoming international filmmakers: www.sehsuechte.de.

Since 2012 we have been supporting the Michael Althen Prize for Criticism, founded by the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. The award ceremony takes place at the Deutsches Theater in Berlin annually.

Moreover, we support selected newcomer projects and invest reference subsidies, granted for our involvement in international co-productions, in German film productions: Co-Productions.
