Wim Wenders Foundation Established In Düsseldorf
The work of German filmmaker Wim Wenders will be preserved and made available to the public through the establishment of the Wim Wenders Foundation. This coming year all films owned by Wenders will be transferred to the foundation as well as his photographic, artistic and literary oeuvre. The body of work will be maintained and preserved at the foundation, headquartered in Düsseldorf, and will be made available for study purposes and academic research. The exploration of New Media, which characteristically runs through Wenders’ films, also will be supported by the awarding of grants to young filmmakers and video artists
