UFA Film Nights

UFA Film Nights

Silent film classics with live musical accompaniment are the recipe for success behind the UFA Film Nights, to which Bertelsmann and UFA regularly treat audiences in Berlin. The format has since gone on to other metropolises as well, including Brussels, Paris, Madrid and New York. In 2020, the UFA Film Nights took place digitally for the first time; starting in 2021, they can be enjoyed both on Berlin's Museum Island and online as live streams.

„Carmen“: The Making of a Restoration

The Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau Foundation’s digital restoration of the silent film “Carmen” took two years – once again supported by Bertelsmann. The restored version of Ernst Lubitsch’s “Carmen” is as close as possible to the original from 1918.
