      To my knowledge at no time did Hitler ever meet Stalin. The negotiations for the 1939 pact were conducted by Molotov in Berlin and by Ribbentrop in Moscow. Even up to 1941 neither leader had visited the other, merely delegations of diplomats travelling to both Capitals.

      If there is footage I would question its authenticity.

        And rightly so. Hitler's meetings with other dictators are well recorded: like with Mussolini during the Berlin Olympic games in 1936 and Hitler's visit to Rome in 1937. (BTW: if you ever want to see this visit covered from a unique angle, watch Ettore Scola's superb movie 'Una giornata particolare' with Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni (the blaring radio covering the visit throughout the movie is the third main actor...)
        Hitler met Franco in Hendaye (Pyrenees) in 1940.

        As for Stalin: it was really difficult for foreign heads of state to meet with Stalin. Paranoid (and for good reasons) as he was he wanted to stay in USSR if he could help it: Teheran (inside Soviet sphere of influence in Persia ) in 1943 and Potsdam (Soviet zone) in 1945, even well inside a safe zone were already exceptions. For Stalin to have come to Berlin or a neutral capital to meet Hitler was unthinkable.

          Interesting side note : For the recent film "downfall" or "der Untergang" the Actor studied film of Hitler in a meeting with Marshal Mannerheim for his role.

            In Edvard Radzinski's work on Stalin, he states that purportedly, a meeting between Hitler and Stalin took place at Lwow on or about October 17, 1939. The meeting had been arranged by Ribbentrop. Radzinski further offers that a message from FBI Director Hooever in 1940 noted the meeting that was brought to his attention by a "reliable source." If this is true, it would probably be one of the most secret wartime meetings ever held. To have been a fly on the wall for that one!

              Hitler flew to Helsinki for that one IIRC.

                I heard some rumour that there was some snafu in airports antiaircraft units at time and they were really close to open fire against Hitler's transport plane.
