The Reichsfilmkammer (RFK; Template:Lang-en) was a statutory corporation controlled by the Ministry of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda that regulated the film industry in Nazi Germany between 1933 and 1945. Membership in the association was obligatory for everyone in the German Reich who wanted to work on films in any capacity; lack of membership meant in effect a ban on employment. Based in Berlin, the establishment of the RFK was an important element of the Gleichschaltung process and Nazi film policy.


The Reichsfilmkammer comprised 10 departments:

  1. General Administration
  2. Politics and Culture
  3. Artistic Care of Filmmaking
  4. Film Industry
  5. Reichsfachschaft Film
  6. Film Production
  7. Domestic Film Distribution
  8. Movie Theaters
  9. Film and Cinema Technology
  10. Cultural and Commercial Film
