ARRI's Centenary Celebrations

Not every company can claim such a long and rich history, and we are humbled and thrilled by this milestone. Since its founding on September 12, 1917, ARRI has been creating quality products and offering services to support and advance the art of filmmaking. These 100 years have only been achievable through the unwavering patronage and critical advice of industry professionals, as well as our partners, customers, and friends. Thank you to all those who have contributed over the years! 

Around our centenary celebrations this year we have been launching some exciting and interactive online content. Explore and enjoy our centenary-related activities!
