The history of the institutional aspects of cinema is interesting and the film studios in Babelsberg a suburb of Berlin which became so famous between the wars started in 1911 in a derelict factory surrounded by some wasteland by the nascent film company Bioscop who were to produce some famous films with Asta Nielsen the Danish Actress.
Babelsberg is still in use today after being taken over by DEFA after 1945.
The Goethe Institute is informative about today’s Babelsberg based German film industry.
