>> www.landesfilmsammlung-bw.de The Landesfilmsammlung Baden-Wuerttemberg (LFS) is the central film archive of the federal state of Baden-Wuerttemberg in Germany. It was established in 1998. The LFS collects films from and about Baden-Wuerttemberg. In addition it archives copies of films funded by the MFG Film Funding Organization. More than 8.500 films have been collected so far from communal, church, state and company archives as well as private collections, the major sources of the constantly growing collection. The oldest film reel dates back to 1904, the latest video file was recorded only last year.
What separates the LFS from other film archives is the large amount of amateur films ranging from the early days of the film era to our times. There are depictions of all areas of public and private life economy and technology, fashion and advertising, children and leisure, farming and housekeeping, customs in and travels to countries far and near, humorous and unusual situations, but also film logs of soldiers of the Wehrmacht and recordings from the post-war period.
