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.
In the last instalment of showing off our 2016 film festival program, we are faced with some of the best and critically acclaimed films in recent times, from Australia and New Zealand. Check out these 5 films from Down Under and start booking your tickets! We’ll see you at the movies!
Put simply, a short film is an expression, a story, brought to life, often independently, by the filmmakers themselves. Down Under Berlin has chosen short films this year, to be able to give you a variety of genres and lengths, styles and topics, that all represent the quality of filmmaking in Down Under today all that sit within our theme of ‘Life Happens’.
