The Location

Join us for the MediaTech Hub Conference at Babelsberg Studios, the European hub for cinematic innovation! For over a century, this historic location has been a breeding ground for groundbreaking media technologies. Now, we bring you cutting-edge advancements in film production, post-production, and distribution – all under one roof.

Hub for MediaTech innovation

Apart from its vibrant film scene, Babelsberg has also made a name for itself as the innovation hub for MediaTech. It is home to pioneering LED and virtual production studios, the first German volumetric studio, and state-of-the-art post-production facilities.

Since 2017, Babelsberg has also been the homebase of the MediaTech Hub Potsdam, one of twelve national digital hubs – and the host of #MTHCON.

The MediaTech Hub Potsdam unites the region’s top MediaTech talent – specialists, visionaries, researchers, companies, startups, and universities. In the heart of Babelsberg, the Hub drives innovation and strengthens the entrepreneurial ecosystem.

A conference venue with unique film history

Back in 1911, it all started with an old paper flower factory, discovered and transformed into the world’s first large-scale film studio by the film pioneer Guido Seeber. Today, five political systems later, Babelsberg is the leading European centre for filmmaking technology.

More than 4.000 films have been produced in the Babelsberg Studios since the first production of The Dance of Death in 1912; meanwhile that first studio building is easy to miss among the many new film and TV studios and outdoor sets.

Wes Anderson, Fritz Lang, Marlene Dietrich, Steven Spielberg and Quentin Tarantino, and, most recently, Lana Wachowski and Baran bo Odar have all found a creative home in Babelsberg – and they won’t be the last to use this iconic film location.
