Happy 100th birthday, ARRI!

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!

On the occasion of ARRI’s 100th anniversary, we wanted to hear from cinematographers, directors, lighting technicians, inventors, historians and users. We reached out, and we were overwhelmed by the response—hundreds of people from every continent and every side of the industry came forward to be interviewed on camera. They spoke about their passion for telling stories, their love of film, their enthusiasm for technology and their individual experiences with ARRI. From these interviews, film editors around the world have created around 300 short films. You can watch them all at www.100.arri.com/filmmakersview
