The influence of German filmmakers in Hollywood has been substantial. Genres such as the 1940s film noir or the 1950s melodrama owe a great deal to directors such as Fritz Lang, Douglas Sirk, and Billy Wilder, all of whom made their mark on Hollywood and film history.

The German Language Film Festival takes place in May and is a collection of three movies, one each from Austria, Switzerland, and Germany.
