CINÉMA DÉCOUVERTE
KINO ENTDECKUNG
GOAL AND PURPOSE OF THE SLOT
This time slot highlights films that differ from purely commercial cinematic movies due to more
complex dramatic structures, provocative content, radically individual visions or cultural
differences.
SELECTION CRITERIA
Generally speaking, this is the programming slot for making discoveries, from the perspective of
both exotic cinematic language and also in terms of formal experimentation. Here films
(predominantly by lesser-known directors) are shown. These may require the increased
attention that viewers are more likely to bring at a later hour. As is the case for the prime time
slots, careful attention should be given to ensure that the film fits television criteria (image
format, contrast, sound quality, rhythm, dramatic structure).
Naturally, as in the prime time slot on Wednesday, ARTE co-productions – German, French,
international – should be recognisably represented. Due to this factor alone, there will be a
relatively high proportion of premiere broadcasts.
American auteur cinema will also find a place here.
Not only due to legal constraints, but also to the criteria mentioned above, the films shown here
are not approved by French and/or German supervisory boards for broadcast before 10:30 or
11:00 p.m.
LENGTH AND BROADCAST
Approx. 100 minutes
Late evening In both countries the original version with subtitles should be shown, if possible.
