CINÉMA CLASSIQUE
KLASSISCHES KINO
GOAL AND PURPOSE OF THE SLOT
This is the prime time slot for the major works in film history and for modern classics that have
had a lasting stylistic influence or have caused paradigm shifts in terms of content or form.
The films presented here are films one must be familiar with in order to understand major
movements in film history and their period of origin.
SELECTION CRITERIA
Films that are regularly shown on German and French television will not be selected. Instead,
this programming slot should allow viewers to rediscover films with evident cinematographic or
historical significance; films which primarily speak to the TV viewers of today. Furthermore,
these films must work within television parameters (image format, contrast, sound quality,
rhythm, dramatic structure).
The slot is reserved for sound films, as there is a separate programme for silent movies on
ARTE.
In principle, the slot is open for films from all countries, eras and genres, including mainstream
commercial movies, as long as the films have proven themselves over time to be particularly
inspiring, original or courageous. It goes without saying that important films from other European
countries and across the world will find their place here. But it is equally evident that it is mostly
outstanding works of French and German film history that will be shown. Feature films from the
USA should not be given the dominating role they play on the world market in this programming
slot.
The films must adhere to the French and German child protection regulations for the airtime. In
the case of older films, however, some official classifications could be re-evaluated due to the
change in socially-conditioned moral values.
LENGTH AND BROADCAST
Ca. 100 minutes
Prime time
In France, films will be broadcasted in French, with the option of viewing the original with
subtitles. In Germany, films will normally be dubbed for broadcast.
