Contacts, partners and synergy in the immediate vicinity

Industry newcomers face the challenge of presenting themselves as future specialists at the interface of content, technology and workflows. FILMUNI.HPI plus offers ways for the Film University and HPI, other institutions and interested project partners from the media industry to work together.

Joint networking events and innovation funding by the Media Innovation Centre Babelsberg (MIZ) provide the perfect opportunity to create synergy between content and technology development and find out about one other.

Potsdam-Babelsberg is the ideal location for combining valuable skills in the fields of science, art and industry. Babelsberg Media City features around 100 production companies and service providers, universities, funding institutions and an extensive industry network.

Specialisations such as format development, second screen, trans- and cross-media storytelling, animation, simulation, automation, archiving, computer-based systems, interaction design and Internet technology harbour enormous potential for innovation – all within a radius of less than 1,500 metres (a short 20-minute walk).
