UFA Film Nights

Silent Film Classics with Live Musical Accompaniment

Open Air in the Heart of Berlin

UFA is one of Germany’s oldest and most distinguished entertainment brands, with an artistic heritage of films like “Metropolis,” “The Blue Angel” and the films of German Expressionism. Today, UFA is a dynamic creator of entertainment content, which has continuously expanded its leadership of the German movie and TV production market over the past few years. UFA’s programs thrill and inspire millions of viewers every day. UFA has evolved from a creator of programs and TV producer into a content specialist, offering a range of solutions for multimedia technologies – and for an extremely varied range of partners.

UFA is the umbrella organization for all German production activities of FremantleMedia, the worldwide production arm of Bertelsmann's RTL Group.

Three production units operate under the UFA umbrella: UFA FICTION, UFA SERIAL DRAMA and UFA SHOW & FACTUAL. Their wide-ranging product portfolio offers a unique diversity of complementary programs. UFA LAB pools all of the Group’s digital activities.

High-quality fiction productions such as TV movies, mini-series, series, and event-scale TV productions are realized by UFA FICTION. Journalistically-oriented formats, reality programs and shows are made by UFA SHOW & FACTUAL as well as a wide range of variety, game, quiz, panel, dating, comedy, and music shows. UFA SERIAL DRAMA is a leading supplier of industrially produced serial dramas and telenovelas. Long-running program brands are the focus of UFA’s product strategy for the company’s core business, the production of TV content. With 20-plus serial program brands at this time, UFA has more long-running franchises in the market than any other producer. UFA sets and develops trends with its programs, but is also committed to tried-and-tested ideas and traditions. Its impressive track record of top-rated successes include “SOKO München,” “SOKO Leipzig,” “GZSZ”, “Alles was zählt,” “Unter uns,” “Ein starkes Team,” “Donna Leon,” “Wer weiß denn sowas” and “Sag die Wahrheit,” outstanding TV movies, TV events and feature films like “Bornholmer Straße,” “Nackt unter Wölfen” (“Naked Among Wolves”), “Generation War,” “Ku’damm 56,“ “Rommel,” “Der Turm” (“The Tower”), movies such as “Hanni & Nanni,” “Jesus liebt mich” (“Jesus Loves Me”) and “The Physician,” as well as internationally successful light entertainment and infotainment such as “Deutschland sucht den Superstar“ (Idols), “Das Supertalent“ (Got Talent) and “Bauer sucht Frau“ (“The Farmer Wants a Wife”).
