For the past ten years, the international cultural and academic discourse on TV production has been dominated by the ‘golden era of US-American series’. In Germany, this development has spawned a lively debate on a much-needed revitalization of the national TV landscape. The symposium SERIAL GERMANY: Neue Deutsche Serien aims to discuss recent and upcoming series with their makers. The event will focus on creative collaborations, production conditions, the role of the American showrunner, and the social and aesthetic meaning of serial storytelling.
Guests include production designer Uli Hanisch (BABYLON BERLIN, 2017), writers Hanno Hackfort, Richard Kropf, Bob Konrad (4 BLOCKS, 2016), director Christian Schwochow and the writers Oliver Kienle, Jana Burbach, Jan Galli (BAD BANKS, 2017), director Jan Bonny and writer Alex Wissel (ÜBER BARBAROSSAPLATZ, 2016), and director Hans-Christian Schmid and actress Julia Jentsch (DAS VERSCHWINDEN, 2017).
SERIAL GERMANY is a joint-initiative of the Deutsche Film- und Fernsehakademie Berlin (dffb), Serial Eyes and Filmnetzwerk Berlin with the support of our friends Arsenal - Institut für Film und Videokunst e.V. and Deutsche Kinemathek - Museum für Film und Fernsehen.
Admission is free. First come, first serve.
