ARTEKINO CLASSICS 2024 PROGRAMME

With the third edition of this groundbreaking public broadcasting initiative, ARTE and ACE are providing free online access to European cinematic treasures.

The new season of ArteKino Classics opens with two major Italian neorealist films: Federico Fellini’s comedy about a group of swindlers, Il Bidone (1955), and Roberto Rossellini’s documentary-style war film, Rome, Open City (1945). Scheduled to become available on 19 and 21 June respectively these two classics paint a portrait of Italy in the 1940s and 1950s.

Several titles will be included on arte.tv from 1 June, such as seminal works by filmmakers such as Dhimitër Anagnosti (Albanian National Film Archive), Harry Kümel (Royal Film Archive of Belgium), Zoltán Fábri (National Film Institute Hungary – Film Archive), Yvonne Scholten (Eye Filmmuseum), Živojin Pavlović (Jugoslovenska Kinoteka), Ana Mariscal (Filmoteca Española).

More European masterpieces will be added each month – with subtitles in six languages – until the end of the year. The digital and analogue broadcast collection will include films such as Philippe de Broca’s The King of Hearts (1966) in August, and Hungarian director Márta Mészáros’ Nine Months (1976) in October. Younger audiences will be able to discover or rediscover the classics of European cinema online.

ArteKino Classics is an integral part of ArteKino which, since 2016, has produced the ArteKino Festival and ArteKino Selection as a showcase for young European directors and their contemporary visions, in a strategy that connects today’s young filmmakers to classic cinema. The programme invites European audiences to (re)discover both popular classics and films that broke new ground in cinematography and social discourse between 1945 to 1995.

The ARTE Group selects the works, in cooperation with the Association des Cinémathèques Européennes (ACE). All these films have been recently restored, many of them in the framework of ACE’s A Season of Classic Films.

Supported by the Creative Europe MEDIA Programme, the ArteKino project is delivered by the ARTE Group and ACE.

ArteKino Classics 2023 programme

Today, 20 March 2023, ARTE launched the second edition of ArteKino Classics. Under this label, ARTE will be showing rarely seen European films – true gems of the 7th art – as part of its linear and non-linear catalogue.

This year’s programme includes some 20 films, including major works by Hungarian director Márta Mészáros, Swedish director Mai Zetterling and Czech director Vera Chytilová. This eclectic collection will be broadcast in Germany and France and made available online at arte.tv, where a rotation of films will be available throughout Europe with subtitles in six European languages.

Swiss filmmaker Claude Goretta’s The Lacemaker, which brought Isabelle Huppert to the attention of a wider audience, will open the festivities on the TV channel.

With this initiative – a hitherto unique event for public television – ARTE is taking a fresh look at the history of European cinema from 1945 to 1995. The programme invites European audiences to (re)discover both popular classics and films that broke new ground in cinematography and social discourse. Making them available online and in multiple languages also allows new and younger audiences to discover classic films easily.

Since last year, ArteKino Classics has been an integral part of ArteKino, which, together with ArteKino Festival and ArteKino Selection, has been presenting young European filmmakers and their take on our times since 2016, providing a bridge between the young cinema of today and heritage cinema.

The ARTE Group selects the works, in cooperation with the Association of European Cinematheques (ACE). All these films have been recently restored, many of them in the framework of ACE’s A Season of Classic Films, and about one third of them were made by women.

Supported by the Creative Europe MEDIA Programme, the ArteKino project is delivered by the ARTE Group and ACE.

A NEW LOOK AT EUROPE’S FILM HERITAGE: ARTEKINO CLASSICS

For those heading to the Berlinale this year, please feel very welcome to join us for this ArteKino panel discussion at the Deutsche Kinemathek!

Monday, 20.02.2023, 15:00-16:00
Veranstaltungsraum 4. Etage, Deutsche Kinemathek

Panel: Nadav Lapid (Filmregisseur / Berlinale Retrospektive), Olivier Père (ARTE France), Nina Goslar (ARTE / ZDF), Michal Bregant (ACE / Národní filmový archiv, Prague), Paulina Reizi (ACE / Eye Filmmuseum).
Moderation: Elisa Jochum (Deutsche Kinemathek).

Being young in today’s world means growing up with digital technology; in the past few years, the younger generation has also developed a renewed consciousness of socio-political issues. At the intersection of these two developments, digitally restored films on – and from – past societal transformations bear the potential to enrich cultural discourse. ArteKino Classics, a new pan-European streaming venture of ARTE, with a special focus on the modern film heritage of 1945-1995, tries to realize this potential. Over a period of three months, ARTE provides 20 national film classics from almost as many European countries with subtitles in six languages (French, English, German, Italian, Spanish, and Polish). The 20 recently restored films were selected in close consultation with the Association des Cinémathèques Européennes (ACE). The programme invites a young European audience to (re)discover both popular classics and films that broke new ground in cinematography and social discourse.

ArteKino Classics: A New Look at Europe’s Film Heritage

Europe’s film heritage is a cultural treasure of astonishing diversity that will have a special place in ARTE with the establishment of the new programme ArteKino Classics. The works waiting to be (re)discovered by all Europeans include both well-known classics and films that are remarkable for their view of the world, their cinematography, or the superb acting.

The films on arte.tv will be available Europe-wide with subtitles in six languages. The twenty recently restored films from almost as many countries were selected in close consultation with the Association des Cinémathèques Européennes (ACE). A third of them are by women directors. ArteKino Classics brings together European films that broke new ground in cinematography.

As part of this programme, ARTE licensed feature films from ACE’s A Season of Classic Films catalogue that consists of newly-restored distinguished titles and less known gems (see catalogue here). These titles are: The Man who had his hair cut short (1965, André Delvaux) – Royal Belgian Film Archive, She Didn’t Say No! (1958, Cyril Frankel) – Irish Film Institute, Derborence (1985, Francis Reusser) – Cinémathèque suisse, The Wayward Girl (1959, Edith Carlmar) – Norwegian Film Institute, and The Death of a Horse (1992, Saimir Kumbaro) – Albanian National Film Archive.
