The media industry contributes to cultural diversity in our federal state. Our economy's creativity and innovation is reinforced and sustains thousands of jobs. That is why it is important for us to secure the best possible parameters for the media industry.
Sabine Bendiek

As “NRWers” in the Rheinau Harbour, we appreciate the proximity to key accounts, medium- sized enterprises and important partners of ICT. Being an innovation-driven company, we are benefitting from the media industry’s diversity and from higher education and research institutions.
Prof. Dr. Andreas Pinkwart
Minister for Economic Affairs, Innovation, Digitisation and Energy of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia
Innovative, creative, digital - the media industry in North Rhine-Westphalia has all the prerequisites for being able to cope with crisis situations as well. The state government will continue to support the industry to the best of its ability because North Rhine-Westphalia needs a strong, attractive film and media industry with its own unique profile.
Dr. Tobias Schmid
Director of the Landesanstalt für Medien NRW and Commissioner for European Affairs of the German Media Authorities
Freedom of speech, protection of human dignity, media pluralism, and youth and user protection are not negotiable for us. We are committed in NRW to ensuring that these are respected in the media - by enforcing the law and offering people orientation in their everyday use of media.
