Until 1991, Dresden was the most important location for the production of animated films in the German-speaking countries. The German Institute for Animated Films keeps and shows the stock of animated films made by DEFA in the Technical Collections Museum of the City of Dresden.
The history of film culture is also linked with the development and production of Ernemann cameras and projection equipment in Dresden.
