Movie Censorship in Germany - Filmzensur in Deutschland


Seminar paper from the year 2013 in the subject Communications - Movies and Television, grade: 1,7, University of Applied Sciences Köln RFH, language: English, abstract: Although article 5 of the German constitution says that 'There shall be no censorship.' and 'Art [...] shall be free.' the reality looks different. Mainly movies and especially the horror genre often have problems with their aimed rating before they are published. In spite of an existing prohibition of censorship movies are cut down to be less harmful to youngsters and children although they are only suitable for adults anyway. But how does this procedure work? Which laws restrict the constitution and when are they applied? After a short definition of the word censorship, an introduction of the most important institutions and a view of the general censorship situation in Germany this term paper shall make clear that: Movie censorship is not necessary (in Germany).
