Founding of the Filmwelt Center Association on April 16, 2017
The founding members decided to start a nonprofit association. Its main mission is to establish a public gathering place for all friends of FILMWELT. The necessary funding for the development will be raised by requesting donations and membership fees in order to cover the own basic part of the costs. Government funding has already promised.
Since we are a nonregistered association, we decided to begin with offering a membership as a sponsoring member to make our members exempt from possible liabilities.
Spaces will be created on an area of 1200 square meters. Film sets that can be walked on, a museum, archives and function rooms will be realized for lectures, exhibitions and also for private events in such a unique and special scenery.
For this reason, the surface area will be reconstructed according to the requirements of local authorities. The construction permit has already been issued. Of course, our spaces will offer a barrier-free access, restrooms also for people with disabilities and enough parking, so everybody can use and enjoy our gathering place.
Why sponsoring and donations?
Every donation and sponsoring membership will help to maintain this unique and world largest privately owned Filmwelt collection of original, mainly Star Trek artifacts and film requisites for the public.
Fans worldwide should be able to access exhibitions. Parts of the Filmwelt Collection will be available as a loan, currently during the exhibitions Star Trek the Exhibition Tour in England (Blackpool), in Germany (Friedrichshafen) and during the Starfleet Academy Experience Tour in Canada and in the USA.
The Filmwelt Center in Bakede, Germany, is home of Martin Netter and his Filmwelt Collection. He is responsible and in charge of the storage, maintenance, archives and preparation for internet- and book-projects. He is also Ambassador and curator of the worldwide exhibitions of his collection. So the vision of Gene Roddenberry and Star Trek stays alive.
Every contribution helps Martin Netter to protect his precious collection for the fandom, for the next generation.
It is his mission in life to preserve the future of Star Trek's past.
