Board of Trustees

The Board of Trustees is one of the DEFA Foundation’s governing bodies. The principles and guidelines for the foundation’s work are determined at regular meetings.

The body consists of nine members: two representatives from the federal government (one from the BKM and one from the Federal Archives), two from the federal states (one from Saxony and alternatingly, one from Berlin or Brandenburg), a representative from the Friedrich-Wilhelm-Murnau Foundation, and four representatives from the area of art and culture, who are appointed by the states of Berlin, Brandenburg, and Saxony.

The new federal states, in which no DEFA studios existed, are given observer status, i.e., representatives from Mecklenburg-West Pomerania, Thuringia, and Saxony-Anhalt, are invited to the board’s meetings, but they have no voting rights. The members are appointed for three years. The current term of office is from 2019 to 2021.
