Welcoming Potsdam UNESCO City of Film

Natalie Moore and Lisa Nawrocki at The Bottle Yard Studios

It was our pleasure to welcome Potsdam UNESCO City of Film Focal Point Lisa Nawrocki, to Bristol this week.

Our City of Film Manager Natalie Moore says: “It was fantastic to welcome Lisa to Bristol in person!

“We took her on a tour of some of our key film partners across the city, visiting The Bottle Yard Studios, Watershed, Pervasive Media Studio and Encounters International Short Film Festival.

“It was a great opportunity to give a fellow City of Film deeper insight into our city and to discuss how we can collaborate together as global Cities of Film in the future.”


About Potsdam UNESCO City of Film

Potsdam is the largest city and capital of the state of Brandenburg in Germany and is known around the world for the palaces and parks that UNESCO World Heritage listed in 1990. It became a UNESCO City of Film in 2019.

Potsdam’s reputation for being a film leader began in 1911 with the construction of the film studios in Babelsberg. Fritz Lang shot his 927 masterpiece Metropolis there.

Today Studio Babelsberg is Europe’s largest studio complex, with 21 studios distributed across more than 179,000 m². It is used for national and international productions; feature films credits include Inglourious Basterds, Bridge of Spies and Matrix, and TV series filmed there include Homeland, Babylon Berlin and Dark. Filming also takes place all over the city.
