Special Preview Screening of
Berlin Syndrome!

Come join Down Under Berlin as we host this special advanced screening of Berlin Syndrome ahead of its German cinema release at MovieMento Kino!

We can think of no better way to celebrate Australian film than previewing a film by an Australian, shot in Berlin and Australia and starring Australian and German actors. It’s basically the perfect DUB film, plus it’s a thriller so bound to be quite an exciting evening.

Director: Cate Shortland
Starring: Teresa Palmer, Max Riemelt, Matthias Habich

You might think we’re hybernating

…but actually we are busy plotting plans!

While we are still in the process of wrapping up our 6th festival (see below) we are already brewing up new ideas. In the meantime, we suggest you head over to our YouTube channel – we have just recently uploaded a number of interviews and Q&A sessions with our 2016 filmmakers. Our 2016 playlist certainly is a great place to start if you want to know more about independent filmmaking Down Under!
