ARTE is different and will stay that way

ARTE is different and will stay that way. Thanks to our creative and talented staff, the channel has

maintained a strong Franco-German identity for 20 years and established its unique presence on the

audiovisual landscape. ARTE is demonstrating its commitment to the digital age by bringing HD

quality to its viewers, as well as exploring the potential of the Internet as a new space for freedom

and creativity and livening up smartphones and social networks with its programmes.

In times of crisis and sweeping change, few things could be more exciting than creating programmes

that are open to all, embody our values and beliefs, provide direction, and above all, hope for the

future! We are meeting this challenge with enthusiasm and confi dence.

A STRONG LINE-UP

FOR DISCERNING VIEWERS

ARTE is based on quality and innovation.

In an age when the latest technological

developments and increasing competition

are leading to fundamental changes

across the media landscape, our viewers

appreciate that we keep our editorial

promises and continue to offer highquality

programming. In Germany, ARTE

is successfully attracting and retaining

an ever greater number of viewers,

particularly with its daytime and prime

time schedules. In France too, ARTE’s

share of the DVB-T market is continually

increasing, although the launch of new

channels has had a serious impact on

the French television landscape.

The Yes Men fi x the World, by Andy Bichlbaum

and Mike Bonanno © Arte France

ARTE is reacting to the dynamic changes

occurring within the media environment

in both countries by introducing a new

approach to its programme line-up that

will give a particular boost to the prime

time and late evening slots. Since its

launch, ARTE has provided its viewers

with the stories behind world affairs

as well as explaining their signifi cance.

Innovations to news reporting are also

being introduced, with ARTE Journal,

The Blogger and Yourope outlining current

events from a European and international

perspective. ARTE is producing more

science-based documentaries and

magazine programmes for peak viewing

hours. ARTE is also approaching its goal

of reaching a younger target audience

Zap around the World – In Afghanistan © ARTE France

with a new style for culture and music

programmes that features the stars

of yesterday and tomorrow. In 2010,

ARTE will continue to plan programmes

from an event-oriented perspective.

Some highlights of this year’s

programmes include: Frédéric Chopin’s

200th anniversary, the outstanding works

of the Japanese cartoonist Hayao

Miyazaki, biodiversity, and of course

Africa, site of this year’s Football World

Cup, and a summer of music from the

sixties, to name merely a few. Join us

for these programmes and more on

ARTE, and it’s even more amazing in HD!

THEMA

Discovering and

understanding

the world

While entertaining the family on Sunday

and tackling social and political issues

on Tuesday, ARTE’s theme evenings

feature a set of fi lms, documentaries and

discussions devoted to a single topic.

Exploring and investigating a huge range

of subjects, they are always entertaining.

Following the same concept, Morning

Thema offers daytime viewers a selection

of the channel’s best documentaries.

THEMA ON TUESDAY

Tuesday at 8:35 pm

Presented by Annie-Claude Elkaim,

Thomas Kausch or Daniel Leconte

Thema on Tuesday stays in tune

with current events by examining

today’s society and debating major

political, socio-economic

and scientifi c issues. Whether

the subject is Japanese whalers,

the Anthrax-Dealers, or the uprising

in Burma, ARTE gives experts and

witnesses a chance to have their say.

THEMA ON SUNDAY

Sunday at 8 :35 pm

Thema on Sunday centres around

a major feature fi lm screened early

in the evening. ARTE entertains family

audiences with a range of evocative

and imaginative subjects such as:

the intimate portrait of a fi lm star

in Isabella Rossellini, my wild life,

or an excursion into the world

of wealthy industrialists and the

Von Bülow mystery with La saga

des grandes familles, or a journey

to far horizons with Les héros

de l’Himalaya.

MORNING THEMA

Weekdays at 10:10 am,

weekends at 9:45 am

Every day of the week has its Morning

Thema: Culture, History, Discovery,

International Affairs, Society, Knowledge,

and the Performing Arts. Monday

through Sunday, ARTE has something

for every viewer’s interest, from politics

to science or from distant cultures

to the intimacy of an artist’s studio.

Experiencing

emotion

ARTE welcomes all categories of fi lm from

the essential cinema classics to ambitious

new creations and inventive shorts. There’s

something exciting for everyone and for

serious fi lm buffs there are great fi lm

masterpieces, broadcast in the original

version with subtitles. Given ARTE’s strength

as a co-producer and commitment to

supporting talented fi lm-makers,

co-productions account for nearly twenty-fi ve

percent of all fi lms shown.

MOVIE CLASSICS

Monday at 8:35 pm

Monday’s prime time Movie Classics

screens original version cinema classics,

old and new, spanning several decades

of fi lm history from Josef von Sternberg’s

The Blue Angel to Fellini’s Casanova

and from Blake Edwards’ Breakfast

at Tiffany’s to Going Places

(Les Valseuses) by Bertrand Blier.

CONTEMPORARY MOVIES

Thursday at 8:35 pm

Thursday’s fi lms are mostly television

premieres chosen for their original,

imaginative, humorous and sensitive

style. Many Contemporary Movies

titles have been award winners at

leading international festivals such as:

In the Mood for Love by Wong Kar-Wai,

Bad Education by Pedro Almodovar,

The Beat that my Heart Skipped

by Jacques Audiard, and The Lives

of Others by Florian Henckel von

Donnersmarck.

MOVIE DISCOVERIES

Wednesday at 10:35 pm

Leaving the box offi ce hits behind,

Movie Discoveries delights real fi lm

buffs with little known works from every

corner of the globe. This showcase for

independent fi lm-makers from Europe

and the US features such works as:

Amos Gitaï’s Free Zone, Marion Hänsel’s

Sounds of Sand, Matthias Glasner’s

The Free Will, and others.

ARTE, FROM SILENT FILM

TO B MOVIES…

ARTE strives to encourage fi lm-makers

and offers a platform for young talent

on Short Circuit, the fi lm magazine that

gets behind the scenes of moviemaking.

Trash provokes and amuses

viewers with what might be called

B movies. Emphasis is placed on rather

extravagant fi lms that offended good

taste and moral sensibilities when fi rst

released but later came to be seen

as pioneering works of world cinema.

Medium Length Films presents the fi rst

works, often highly individual, of young

directors past and present. ARTE

also remains faithful to the classics,

with a monthly Silent Movie session.

DRAMA

AND SERIES

Experiencing

emotion

ARTE’s ambitiously wide range of drama

includes detective stories, historical dramas,

and psychological thrillers. More than half of

the titles featured are ARTE co-productions,

drawing their inspiration from the social

realities, little daily pleasures, excitement,

action, and sometimes major crises of real

life. The recent arrival of series on ARTE will

please fans of suspense and those nostalgic

for their favourite cult series.

DRAMA ON FRIDAY

Friday at 8:35 pm

Featuring ARTE co-productions and

television premieres the fi lms on Drama

on Friday draw viewers into the lives

and dreams of their characters. Many

of these television fi lms, like Jean-Paul

March of Millions, have won festival

awards for their strong storylines, subtle

narration, and emotional intensity.

DRAMA ON SATURDAY

Saturday at 10:30 pm

Saturday’s fi lms may carry us off to

new horizons or suprise us as we to

rediscover the everyday and familiar.

These often audacious and sometimes

puzzling works like Amos Gitaï’s Carmel

or Im nächsten Leben by Marco

Mittelstaedt inspire and amuse with

their freewheeling style.

SERIES ON ARTE

Crime scenes, scandals, conspiracies,

and the quest for justice, The Tuesday

Evening Series holds its audience

spellbound with television premieres

of productions such as KDD –

Kriminaldauerdienst and Les Invincibles.

The Afternoon Series provides

an opportunity to watch or re-watch

such cult series as The Avengers

and Vier Frauen und ein Todesfall.

the documentary series The War are

a few examples of the windows

the viewer is given on today’s world.

ON-AIR DEPARTMENT

The On-Air Department is actually four

departments: Pre-Broadcast,

Broadcasting, Broadcast Continuity,

and Onscreen Design – sound and text.

Together, they are responsible for all

stages of the programming and

broadcasting process, from technical

conformance to advance promotion

with international award winning trailers

harmoniously designed to refl ect

channel branding and identity.

PROGRAMMING

IN TWO LANGUAGES

As a French/German co-operation,

ARTE produces and broadcasts

all programmes in both languages.

French- and German-speaking viewers

automatically receive broadcasts

in their own language but also have

access to the second language

version as well as original language

versions with subtitles for some fi lms.

This creates a daily challenge for the

ARTE staff. The Subtitling/Dubbing

Service supervises subtitling, dubbing

and re-versioning of voice-overs and

narration. Language Service

provides simultaneous translation

for studio productions, as well as

multilanguage versions of live events

such as opera, theatre and festivals.

WWW.ARTE.TV

Innovative

web formats

ARTE is a force for change and innovation

on the web. An early Internet pioneer

with the launch of www.arteradio.com

in 2002, ARTE continues to be a proactive

player online, utilising social networks and

introducing many new experimental features.


A BRAND NEW FORMAT:

THE WEB DOCUMENTARY

ARTE introduces new ways to tell a

story. In 2008, the resounding success

of Gaza / Sderot, Life in Spite of

Everything spotlighted an entirely new

genre: the web documentary. Live

and interactive, the web documentary

takes viewers into an unknown world,

allowing them to navigate along multiple

pathways featuring narration, interviews,

portraits, etc.

In 2010, ARTE will continue this

adventure with further experiments

in the new genre like Africa: 50 Years

of Independence (Afrique: 50 ans

d’indépendance), Prison Valley and

Havana / Miami: Times are changing

(Havana / Miami: les temps changent).

ARTE RADIO

Acknowledged as a benchmark

for creativity with sound,

www.arteradio.com offers over

1.300 short - and medium-length

features. News and special reports,

dramas and documentaries are available

for online listening or as podcasts.

ARTE AND SOCIAL

NETWORKS

ARTE keeps a high profi le both on the

web and on social networks such as

Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, MySpace,

and StudiVZ. ARTE initiates discussions

and networking groups and keeps users,

especially the youth audience, up

to date on programmes and events.

THE CREATIVE PLATFORM

The concept of the creative platform

is to provide an inspirational environment

for interested users as well as a place

for discussion and exchange of ideas

in an editorially managed context

where both young creative talents

and acknowledged experts in

their fi elds can join in producing

audiovisual content.

FOR INDUSTRY USERS…

On www.artepro.com, audiovisual

and media professionals will fi nd ARTE

magazine, press kits and releases,

stills from programmes, a directory

of producers and distributors,

an audiovisual rights catalogue

and also details on how to

submit projects.

Art, history, society, literature, philosophy,

or social investigation…

the range and depth of ARTE

programming has expanded into other

media through ARTE Editions, a joint

label for both DVD and book publishing

since 2008. An ambitious editorial policy

ensures a wide variety of subjects and

styles, providing food for thought and

material for debate. True to the channel’s

spirit of openness, ARTE Editions

engages primarily in joint ventures,

seeking proactive partnerships to bring

works into publication and ensure

their ongoing sales and distribution.

In the ten years of its existence, the

publishing arm has become a preferred

partner in the industry, initiating original

projects that refl ect the commitment

and enthusiasm of ARTE, as well as

its high standards and spirit of enquiry.

The book catalogue now has almost a

hundred titles, including such bestselling

successes as the book If Maps Could

Talk (Atlas du Dessous des cartes) series,

based on the programme with Jean-

Christophe Victor, a book version of The

World According to Monsanto (Le monde

selon Monsanto) by Marie-Monique

Robin and the graphic novel Waltz with

Bachir, inspired by Ari Folman’s fi rst

animated documentary feature.

In DVD and Blu Ray, ARTE Editions

has won over audiences with box sets

of The War by Ken Burns and Lynn

Novick and Architectures by Richard

Copans and Stan Neumann. Performing

arts are also a strong point, with titles

such as Louise Bourgeois, Ariane

Mnouchkine – The Adventure of the

Théâtre du Soleil and Peter and the Wolf,

the musical fable by Sergei Prokofi ev.

PRESS AND

PUBLIC RELATIONS

There is a high level of awareness in

the media of ARTE’s exacting standards

as a quality cultural network open

to the world, and so the channel’s

programming and top features attract

extensive press coverage in France,

Germany and throughout Europe. The

full range of TV magazine programmes,

daily press, radio and new media

thus represent a major public relations

vehicle for ARTE, to which the channel

attaches enormous importance. The

press offi ces in Paris, Strasbourg and

Baden Baden co-ordinate ARTE’s public

relations efforts, organising numerous

initiatives across Europe that provide

an opportunity for liaison and exchange

of ideas with journalists and industry

professionals.

ARTE stand, Frankfurt Book Fair © ARTE Deutschland

TRADE FAIRS

AND FESTIVALS

A much sought after producer, ARTE

maintains a high profi le at all the

important festivals in Germany, France

and other European countries. Meetings

are held with journalists and fi lm-makers

at the Berlin and Cannes Film Festivals,

two major cinematic events, but ARTE’s

efforts do not stop there.

The channel also participates in the most

important television trade fairs such as

FIPA, MIPTV, MIPCOM, MIDEM and

Media Forum NRW and ARTE is present

and highly regarded at the Paris,

Frankfurt and Leipzig book fairs.

PROMOTION

AND MARKETING

ARTE supports its special programming

and fl agship titles – especially new

programmes and live coverage

of the Cannes and Berlin fi lm festivals

– with energetic and original publicity.

The channel’s marketing teams

in France and Germany design and

run major promotional campaigns

in print media and on the radio.

CULTURAL INITIATIVES

ARTE plays an active role in the cultural

life of France, Germany and Europe

as a whole, providing creative space

for artists and encouraging contact

with the public. ARTE France has set

up a special commission for its cultural

initiatives, which has led to numerous

events in France and Europe,

in particular the Temps d’images

Festival of the performing and moving

image arts. In Germany, ARTE

Deutschland co-operates with several

major cultural institutions, including the

“Houses of Literature” (Literaturhäuser),

and Franco-German events such as

the Perspectives theatre festival.


The channel

Digital Master Control, ARTE GEIE © Frédéric Maigrot

ARTE is a European cultural public service channel. Subdivided into three main

companies: ARTE France, ARTE Deutschland, and ARTE GEIE, the group

employs staff from France, Germany and other European countries.

In both France and Germany, 95% of funding for the channel comes from

the direct tax on home television sets. The network is not allowed to show

advertising, but may seek additional revenue from other sources, in particular,

corporate patronage.

With its Europe-wide reach, ARTE has also developed a range of successful

partnerships for co-production and exchange of programmes with the major

European public service broadcasters.

ARTE GEIE

Headquarters of ARTE GEIE in Strasbourg © Frédéric Maigrot/ARTE

A workforce of 430 French and German employees ensures

the smooth operation of ARTE GEIE, which also relies on the

efforts of freelance and independent journalists and occasional

performers, as well as various contractors for miscellaneous

services. The average staff age is forty-two, with around nine

years of service. In an enterprise with dual nationality like ARTE,

the need to establish a common corporate culture and identity

that all staff can identify with is a major challenge faced daily,

in all of its activities. Good communication between, and

co-ordination of, the channel’s three operational centres are

critical elements in this process. An internal forum and a staff

exchange programme enable everyone involved to experience

the varied skills and know-how that go into making the channel

successful while also providing a space for inter-personnel

dialogue within the company.


BUDGET

ARTE GEIE is a fi nancially independent,

self-governing entity. In addition

to management controls exercised

by two controllers from ARTE France

and ARTE Deutschland appointed

by the General Assembly – currently

Fabrice Rebois and Dr. Klaus Wenger –

and the fi nancial controls provided by

the auditors, an external control function

has been created to check on the

implementation of resolutions adopted

by the General Assembly, compliance

with current legislative requirements,

and the effective use of funds.

TRANSMISSION AND

RECEPTION

Shooting © Frédéric Maigrot


HDTV

Since 2007, ARTE has broadcast

programmes in HD via ADSL, cable,

the ASTRA satellite, and on Digital

Terrestrial Television (DTTV).

The number of HD productions

is growing constantly and all ARTE

programmes are being converted

to a technical quality that is ideally

suited to fl at widescreen televisions.

BRINGING ARTE

TO EVERY SCREEN

TV via ADSL

ARTE features in several triple play

packages (Internet / telephone / TV)

offered by ADSL providers.

Hybrid Broadcast Broadband TV

The idea of HBB-TV is to merge

broadcast audiences with Internet

users in front of a single screen,

enabling viewers to surf the web and

watch TV on the same set. All ARTE’s

programming, free-to-air and on

demand, is available via broadband

with excellent picture quality.

On mobile phones and iPhones

In Germany, the latest mobile phone

models allow reception of ARTE

via DTTV. In both Germany and France,

special iPhone packages offer access

to ARTE using 3G streaming technology.

SAME PICTURE,

DIFFERENT LANGUAGES

Thanks to digital transmission,

ARTE programmes are always

available in stereo and in both local

languages. French and German

speaking viewers automatically

receive broadcasts in their own

language but also have access to

the second language version as well

as original language versions with

subtitles for some fi lms.

SUBTITLES FOR HEARING-

IMPAIRED VIEWERS AND

AUDIO DESCRIPTION

Every year ARTE broadcasts

about thirty cinema titles

and television dramas with

Audio Description on the second

channel via DTTV, satellite and

over-the-air. The AD feature,

available in both French

and German, makes visual

and narrative content accessible

to the blind and visually impaired.

The channel is also increasingly

offering programmes for the hard

of hearing: up to 50% of its broadcasts

can be accessed in a subtitled

version via teletext, or by using

the “subtitles” function on TNT,

satellite, ADSL and cable

decoders.

58-59

New transmission technologies are constantly

expanding the number of viewers in Europe

who can receive ARTE programmes. In 2009,

the total reach of the channel was 190 million

viewers in 80 million households.

IN FRANCE

AND GERMANY

ARTE can be watched by about

95% of the population in the two

countries.

In France 5.3 million households

have a satellite dish, 2.9 million

are cable subscribers, 7.4 million

receive DTTV and 3.6 million

are still using the analogue

terrestrial network, on which

ARTE is broadcast from 7 pm

daily. Nearly all of France and

its territories now receive DTTV

and the transition from analogue

will be complete by the end

of 2011. Almost 3 million

households are ADSL subscribers.

In Germany 15.8 million

households are cable

subscribers and 14.7 million

have a satellite dish. 3.6 million

households have access

to DTTV. 300.000 households

are ADSL subscribers.

IN EUROPE

AND WORLD WIDE

As a European cultural network,

ARTE is relayed by numerous cable

networks and satellite services

Europe-wide and overseas:

• In Belgium 98% of households

receive ARTE (total 4 million

households).

• In Switzerland ARTE is broadcast

(in French and German) on all

cable networks – a total of 3

million households.

• In the Netherlands ARTE

is available to 3 million cable

households.

• In Spain ARTE is accessible

via cable networks. A selection

of ARTE programmes is also

national network La 2.

• In Austria 85% of cable networks

relay ARTE programmes to 1

million households. ARTE is also

received by 1.5 million households

with satellite dishes.

• In Finland 1 million households

receive ARTE via satellite.

The signal is also carried

by numerous cable networks.
