Welcome to Görliwood®!
The city experienced its first film kiss in the 1950s, in the meantime Görliwood® has been kissed awake. Important national and international film productions with star casts have filmed in Görlitz and the region, and many like to come back. Their traces can be discovered on the Walk of Görliwood®. The city delights with its original locations, short distances and film-enthusiastic people. Film has long since become a regional economic factor. While the Film Office Görlitz supports film production companies with its individual services before and during filming, the Saxon Film Academy trains film professionals.
More than 100 films have been produced since the 1950s, sometimes even several films per year. Among them, there are numerous international and Oscar-winning productions, but many German TV productions as well. It all began with an East German classic “Der Ochse von Kulm“. Here comes a selection of the most well-known films produced in Görlitz.Unfold
