The director of The Face of Birth tells us how it is
Down Under Berlin says thank you to everyone involved in the 6th festival edition! Check this page for more upcoming events.
With the help of our volunteers we put together an amazing 6th festival. Find out how you can get involved here!
Promote your brand during the annual festival or at a range of exclusive film previews, movie nights or other events.
The next screening is the Australian birth documentary The Face Of Birth by Kate Gorman and Gavin Banks. This film is hitting all the right notes at the moment because the issues that have been felt in Australia in the last few years, regarding indemnity insurance for midwives attending home births, is also one felt in the midwifery profession in Germany.
In celebration of DUB’s ‘Berlin Syndrome’ screening tomorrow, we thought it only best to go directly to the boss lady herself, the film’s director Cate Shortland, and see what she says about filming in Germany, the struggle to stay true to filmmaking dreams and filming Berlin Syndrome is just 6 weeks.
As the Down Under Berlin film festival celebrates everything Australian and Berlin, we thought it only necessary to support another Australian/Germany production, the Australia Now Campaign hosted by the Australian Embassy Berlin!
