9 - 10 September 2010 at the Deutsche Kinemathek, Berlin

A feature film is banned because it - allegedly 
or actually - violates the law. A planned 
documentary is never realized because a legal 
advisor warns of possible law suits that would 
pose too great a financial risk. At the same 
time, certain films that are prohibited under the 
current law can be watched around the globe. 
These three scenarios constitute different 
aspects of a common overarching topic. The 
symposium "Prohibited Films" will serve as a 
forum to discuss the various legal restrictions 
that apply to films, and examine the impact that 
these restrictions have on film production, 
distribution and reception.

WHERE: Deutsche Kinemathek, Filmhaus am Potsdamer 
Platz, Potsdamer Str. 2, 10785 Berlin


Please register until 31 August 2010 by sending
