The Deutsche Kinemathek was founded in 1963 by Gerhard Lamprecht, film director and collector.

In 2000 the Deutsche Kinemathek opened the museum of film and television on Potsdamer Platz in the centre of Berlin.  It provides a base for a collection of films and archives, situated in the offices of the “Berlinale” international film festival, which it has organised since 1977.  Since 2006 teaching and education activities and projects have been coordinated around both visiting and permanent exhibitions, whilst also providing access to the film collections and archives.  A successful programme of a wide array of education work has been in operation since the opening of the education department.

The Deutsche Kinemathek first took part in Cinema Cent Ans de Jeunesse in 2011.  They have taken part in the project each year since, with the exception of 2012/13.

The Deutsche Kinemathek does not have a permanent education staff, collaborators are appointed for each project, and funding is sought from exterior sources.  The groups that take part in the Cinema Cent Ans De Jeunesse project are lead in partnership with the University of Breme by Bettina Henzler).
