German films since 1945

This is a list of the most notable films produced in the German Empire until 1918, in year order.

It includes German films from the introduction of the medium to the resignation of the Emperor at the end of World War I. While the output of films during this period is small, and cinema was a science in its infancy, many of these films laid the ground work for German Expressionism, as well as document a prosperous, yet foreboding, period in German history.

For an alphabetical list of articles on films of the period see Category:Early German cinema.
