In 1949, the current Federal Republic of Germany came into existence, as did the separate German Democratic Republic which ceased to exist in 1990 when its states acceded to the Federal Republic, which is informally since simply called Germany again.
Because of the impact of the Second World War, and restrictions imposed on the country by the allied powers, film production between 1945 and 1948 was limited and did not pick up really until after 1950. See also Category:West German films
