Getting inside the DUB short films of 2016!

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’.

Highlights from Down Under Berlin 2015

Highlights from Down Under Berlin 2015

We thought it would be a nice idea to have a look back at the favourites from last year’s festival. We invited some of DUB staff to talk about the films that were the most well received, and why they made such an impression on our audiences. Revisiting these films gets us more excited about the line-up of the 2016 program, and we can’t wait to share it with you soon!

’10 Questions with…’ Down Under Berlin’s Frances Hill

’10 Questions with…’ Down Under Berlin’s Frances Hill

To run a week long festival in a foreign country to your own, is not an easy feat. It takes passion, dedication and drive, a bit of movie know-how, a good team, and a sense of humour doesn’t hurt. The next in our series of “10 questions with…”, we ask DUB master and chief, Frances Hill, a few questions to get to know her a little better.
