ARRI celebrates 100 years
In 1917 two enthusiastic teenagers, August Arnold and Robert Richter, founded a film technology firm in Munich, Germany. 100 years later the headquarters are still on the same street in Munich, but ARRI has grown into a global company and a trusted partner of the international motion picture industry, with around 1,300 employees worldwide.
Our centenary celebrations this year will focus on September, the actual month of the anniversary, when we’ll be launching some exciting and interactive online content. As you can see, we’re already counting down the days; in the meantime we’ll make any centenary-related announcements right here, so don’t forget to bookmark the page.
Happy Birthday ARRI
ARRI is turning 100 this September and hundreds of filmmakers from all over the world are celebrating with us! Hear their stories. September 12th.
