    Berlin, with its filmatic history stretching from "Nosferatu" and Fritz Lang’s "Metropolis" to current Hollywood big budget films such as "V for Vendetta," "Black Book" and Tom Cruise’s "Valkyrie," provides the perfect location for a study tour.  With many media corporations based here it has grown a reputation as a leading media centre and the Sony Centre is a shining representation of Germany's progress since reunification.

    Generous access is granted to visitors to see a current soap opera or TV film being recorded at the Babelsburg Studios. Also the Berlin Film Museum has an excellent documentation of the history of German cinema from 1895 to 1980. Contained in the elegant former Marstall (royal stables) it has rooms full of famous props, costumes, set-designs and projection screens.

  • Reasons to Visit
