In the confidential Ufa book "Guidelines for Film Distribution 1940/1941" found in our Library,  the book has a small set of guidelines for Ufa managers as regards providing feature films and short films to the Hitler Youth Ordensburgen:

The paragraph explains  the renting out of films to the ORDENSBURGEN, is to be at a flat (i.e.: inexpensive) rate of RM 50,– to RM 75,- per film and further states:

" The Ordensburgen of the Party as training centres of the future Party leadership attach great importance to film screenings in order to take a corresponding share in the development of German film. "

Only one feature film was made in the Third Reich  in an Ordenburgen -- Victor de Kowa's  Kopf Hoch, Johannes! (Chin up, Johannes!), which starred Klaus Detlef Sierck as the young Argentine-German sent from the Pampas to Germany for schooling, and to learn discipline and obediance after youthful transgressions on his father's farm estate in Argentina.
