New Zealand Embassy Berlin, Germany
Focus Australia and New Zealand
INTERFILM International Short Film Festival Berlin (12.-17.11.2013) presents:
This year, six programmes will present Australia and New Zealand in all of their facets: From short fiction to animation through to documentary. Tightly woven atmospheric stories are told with persistently new cinematic ideas and provide insights into life “Down Under”. These focus programmes present the diversity of contemporary short filmmaking in both countries. With three Australian and two New Zealand programmes, as well as a mixed documentary programme, this selection aims to compare and contrast the stylistic and narrative characteristics of both countries while revealing the subtle and remarkable differences so often overlooked outside the southern hemisphere.
