Besides its film archive
by which the Murnau-Foundation complies with its constitutional
cultural tasks, the Foundation also collects additional
film material, such as photographs, programme and press
booklets and, in particular, film posters.
This collection comprises several thousand film posters.
The posters refer to film titles in which the Murnau-Foundation
is the right-holder as well as to film titles of other copyright-holders,
which have all been checked by Freiwillige Selbstkontrolle
der Filmwirtschaft (FSK) since its formation in 1949.
The Murnau-Foundation wants to make accessible on its website
this stock of posters to the public, particularly interesting
for film historians as well as for contemporary and art
historians. For the time being about 7.600 poster images
can be viewed; in the following months the Foundation will
continue its project and thus complete and augment the web-stock
