  1. German Expressionism consisted of a number of related creative movements in Germany before the First World War that reached a peak in Berlin during the 1920s. These developments in Germany were part of a larger Expressionist movement in north and central European culture in fields such as architecture, dance, painting, sculpture and cinema. This article deals primarily with developments in German Expressionist cinema before and immediately after World War I, approximately from 1910 to the 1930s.

  2. Expressionism is a modernist movement, initially in poetry and painting, originating in Northern Europe around the beginning of the 20th century. Its typical trait is to present the world solely from a subjective perspective, distorting it radically for emotional effect in order to evoke moods or ideas. Expressionist artists have sought to express the meaning of emotional experience rather than physical reality. Expressionism developed as an avant-garde style before the First World War. It remai

    I haven't been able to parse "The German Expressionist movement was largely expanded down to the isolation Germany was in during World War I." The "was largely expanded down to" seems to be the problem. Can the author rephrase this sentence? Thanks. Knowthhill (talk) 04:30, 2 February 2012 (UTC)

    Would this count as a German expressionist film? Thanks —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:10, 20 November 2010 (UTC) 1. 1.1. It would appear not, although it is clearly related. 1) It was produced in 1930. 2) It deals with World War I. 3) The article identifies the author's perspective as "New Objectivity". I'm going to add a "Related" link at the bottom, but if there is objection from those more expert on the topic than I, just remove it. Ralohmann (talk) 14:55, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

    I notice that this page is virtually a copy of Expressionism (film), other than the photo that was added later. I believe that one of these needs to go and be turned into a redirect... though I'm not sure of the procedure for merging them. RcktScientistX23:11, 8 Oct 2004 (UTC) 1. Merging is done with {{merge}} and {{mergefrom}} - UtherSRG19:37, Feb 1, 2005 (UTC) do not merge the articles, i teach a film class, they are two seperate ideas. One was developed in America and the other in Germany. They should be kept seperate eventhough the ideas are seperate. 1. I disagree with the above poster. Unless they are modified, they should be merged. They are virtually identical. I see very little difference in the other article. If you wish to make is seperate, please as to edit the other article to actually make it different. Claude.Xanadu04:22, 22 February 2006 (UTC) 1. I oppose merging the articles. German Expressionism is a distinct and important period in German film. It's logical that t...

    This page should be retitled either "German Expressionism (film)" or "German Expressionist Cinema". German Expressionism was a much wider artistic movement, covering painting (Grosz, Dix and so on), poetry (Georg Heym, Trakl, Gottfried Benn), theatre (Toller, early Brecht) and music (Schoenberg, Berg) as well as other art forms. The main page "German Expressionism" should reflect that.--Folantin12:21, 12 October 2006 (UTC) Agreed - Expressionist film really came at the tail end of the overall German Expressionist movement. The Expressionist poets, painters, playwrights and directors, had an unfortunate tendency to get killed in the first world war; those that came back alive had a much more cynical style more like Dada.-- Mark, 12 October 2006 This is a good and important point. The term "German Expressionism" is used in respect of a number of loosely connected movements in literary and visual arts - even architecture - and not just in film. Not only does the name of this article ne...

    The introduction notes when it started and who contributed to it, but it never mentions what German expressionism is. Sure it says filmmakers "developed their own style by using symbolism and mise en scène to add mood and deeper meaning to a movie," but I doubt these aspects are unique to German expressionism. The first section after the introduction contains some aspects of 1920s-1930s German Expressionism, but are these qualities shared by all films in this category? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:09, 5 January 2008 (UTC) 1. I have tried to develop the article to include the forms other than film to which the term applies. The geographic spread of the artists included in Expressionism, and the large number of German (and American) artists included suggests a need for a nationally based series of articles. Philip Cross (talk) 23:12, 29 July 2008 (UTC) 1.1. Hi, Phil. I think i like the direction you're going, tho i was initially quite shocked that your...

    I know the qualifying word is "arguably", but on a site like Wikipedia it's usually a way of saying "it is better" without stirring the pot. This is a ridiculous statement for one big reason: "German Expressionism" doesn't remotely encapsulate everything about cinema in the 1920s. The Soviets were doing things the Germans weren't doing just as the Americans were doing things the Soviets were not. F.W. Murnau dropped the more obvious trappings of German Expressionism for a subtler cinematic expressionism/modernism and embraced montage and classical Hollywood form in his last films, the superb City Girl and the final masterpiece Tabu (even in his German period he wasn't nearly as ubiquitous with German Expressionism as he's always made out to be - this is true of German cinema in general.) His American students, particularly King Vidor and John Ford, and other contemporary filmmakers from around the world such as Jean Renoir, would continue on in this manner. The impact of the German...

    It appears that a variety of very good suggestions have been made here over the last 10 years, but there has been little followup. It appears that most of these can be accommodated fairly easily, so I'm going to try to deal with at least some of them, and I hope that others will keep an eye on these changes and comment or re-revise as necessary. Ralohmann (talk) 14:04, 24 September 2015 (UTC) 1. Indeed, I look forward to your proposed changes. The title MUST be changed to something like "German Expressionism (film)," "German Expressionist film" or "German Expressionism in film" -- whatever accords best to the Wiki directives on titling. I was stunned this morning hoping to find a Wiki on the history of German Expressionism in the arts -- painting, printmaking and sculpture -- and instead found this. German Expressionism was a major art movement that emerged around 1905 and continued until the National Socialists condemned much of it as 'degenerate' around 1936-38. By that time, it h...

    The article says "a number" of expressionist directors went to Hollywood but no names are mentioned. Could someone expand on this point? Ralohmann (talk) 15:37, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

    1895–1918 German Empire

    The history of cinema in Germany can be traced back to the years shortly after the medium's birth. On 1 November 1895, Max Skladanowsky and his brother Emil demonstrated their self-invented film projector, the Bioscop, at the Wintergarten music hall in Berlin. A 15-minute series of eight short films were shown – the first screening of films to a paying audience. This performance pre-dated the first paying public display of the Lumière brothers' Cinematographe in Paris on 28 December of the sa...

    1918–1933 Weimar Republic

    The German film industry, which was protected during the war by the ban on foreign films import, became exposed at the end of the war to the international film industry while having to face an embargo, this time on its own films. Many countries banned the import of German films and audiences themselves were resisting anything that was "German". But the ban imposed on German films involved commercial considerations as well – as an American president of one of the film companies was quoted, "an...

    1933–1945 Nazi Germany

    The uncertain economic and political situation in Weimar Germany had already led to a number of film-makers and performers leaving the country, primarily for the United States; Ernst Lubitsch moved to Hollywood as early as 1923, the Hungarian-born Michael Curtiz in 1926. Some 1,500 directors, producers, actors and other film professionals emigrated in the years after the Nazis came to power. Among them were such key figures as the producer Erich Pommer, the studio head of Ufa, stars Marlene D...

    The Deutsche Filmakademie was founded in 2003 in Berlinand aims to provide native filmmakers a forum for discussion and a way to promote the reputation of German cinema through publications, presentations, discussions and regular promotion of the subject in the schools.

    The Berlin International Film Festival, also called Berlinale, is one of the world's leading film festivals and most reputable media events. It is held in Berlin, Germany. Founded in West Berlin in 1951, the festival has been celebrated annually in February since 1978. With 274,000 tickets sold and 487,000 admissions it is considered the largest publicly attended film festival worldwide. Up to 400 films are shown in several sections, representing a comprehensive array of the cinematic world. Around twenty films compete for the awards called the Golden and Silver Bears. Since 2001 the director of the festival has been Dieter Kosslick. The festival, the EFM and other satellite events are attended by around 20,000 professionals from over 130 countries. More than 4200 journalists are responsible for the media exposure in over 110 countries. At high-profile feature film premieres, movie stars and celebrities are present at the red carpet.

    The main production incentive provided by governmental authorities is the Deutscher Filmförderfonds (German Federal Film Fund) (DFFF). The DFFF is a grant given by the German Federal Commissioner for Culture and the Media. To receive the grant a producer has to fulfill different requirements including a cultural eligibility test. The fund offers 60 million euros a year to film producers and or co-producers and grants can amount to up to 20% of the approved German production costs. At least 25% the production costs must be spent in Germany, or only 20%, if the production costs are higher than 20 million euros. The DFFF has been established in 2007 and supported projects in all categories and genres. In 2015 the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Energie) launched a new film & TV funding program entitled "German Motion Picture Fund". For the first time in Germany innovative series formats and digital filmmaking will be funded at a fe...
