Down Under Berlin has the privilege to speak with award winning journalist, filmmaker, and founder of the awesome and inspiring film-sharing platform We Are Moving Stories. As well as being an interesting subject for our next ’10 Questions with…’ series, Carmela Baranowska is also an all round awesome chick, a huge supporter of film, and of women in film.
After everyone has caught up on all the things that fall behind when spending 5 days at a film festival, Down Under Berlin 2016 is done and dusted! Whether you were coming for the first time, or returning for your 6th, we hope you have had as wonderful a time as the DUB team has had. Thank you!
There were added 6 extra screenings in total. Roughly 1100 guests, 200 pies and sausage rolls eaten, and a party with the attending filmmakers and guests at Zum Böhmischen Dorf till about 5am Sunday morning. It’s fair to say a good time was had by all over the course of the full five festival days. We say thank you!
Last night was the opening night of Down Under Berlin 2016 and we kicked off in true down under fashion. Headlining film Spear had a waiting list,there was a last minute second screening to deal with the demand in tickets, and a bucket load of whiskey and ginger ale from Jameson’s Irish Whiskey for our audience.
