The MFA produces working films on demand.

Customers who wish to purchase duplicate microfilm must order their copies directly from the MFA, which will organise production and delivery.

Microfilm can be ordered by letter, email or fax. If you have any questions concerning an item you are interested in, please contact our office.
Within Germany, working films cost €45 per roll inclusive of postage and packing. They hold approximately 600 images, which is roughly equivalent to two newspaper pages. The base price per roll is €35 for subscribers. Members receive a 10% discount on all orders. All customers receive a 5 % discount on individual orders over € 500. These charges also apply to customers from other EU countries but additional postage costs will be payable. Please contact us for prices of packages overseas. Due to the MFA’s status as a non-profit organisation VAT is not charged on duplicate films.
