Our Self-Conception

The networked structure of the association is new and unique. It combines the diversity of our members and promotes their networking and collaborations. This opens up numerous approaches to urban society.

One of our goals is to present the wide spectrum in the field of the moving image: different realities of life, cultures, stories, experiences, aesthetics, languages etc. are to be made visible and thus discussable. We want to achieve this by offering a programme that is not only shaped by our members, but also by the ideas and suggestions from a wide variety of social strata.

We will therefore cooperate with cultural institutions, citizens' initiatives, festivals, cinemas, companies, schools, and institutes of higher education in Stuttgart and see ourselves as a platform, coordinator, and service provider for the entire spectrum of the moving image. You can find details and further explanations in our Position Paper.



We are getting the Haus für Film und Medien off the ground. To do this, we need the support of cultural policy, the cultural administration, and the citizens of Stuttgart. We are looking forward to your ideas and your commitment to create a fulminant start. You can currently support us in the following ways:

  1. You are working as a non-profit institution in the field of film and media culture in Stuttgart and the region and would like to actively support the work of our association?

    Then you can apply to become an institutional member. This can be done informally by e-mail to info@hfm-stuttgart.de and should include a short description of your institution's field of activity as well as your ideas about the type and scope of your support.

  2. Our concept for the Haus für Film und Medien appeals to you, and you would like to support us as a private person or as a company and closely follow all developments?

    You can become a supporting member of the association. Please send us an informal e-mail to info@hfm-stuttgart.de describing your motivation. We will be pleased to contact you.

  3. You do not want to be a member of the association, but still wish to support our project? If so, we would be delighted to receive your donation.

    As a non-profit association, we can of course issue donation receipts.

With our statutes we want to take advantage of the participatory structure of the association and at the same time enable stability, continuity, and professionalism.

The purpose of the association is the promotion of training, education, art and culture, in particular the promotion of film and media culture in the Stuttgart region. The association currently has 26 full members. Full members should, as far as possible, be non-profit, legal entities under public and private law with a registered office in the Stuttgart region and a recognisable link to film and media culture in their activities. At the same time, civic commitment is made possible through supporting memberships. The association is primarily financed by membership fees, donations, and public funding from the City of Stuttgart for "cultural infrastructure".
