HERE WE GO!
The 2016 Festival Program is out!
Charmaine Gorman asked some of the filmmakers to tell us a little more about their submissions.
The 6th Down Under Berlin will return to Moviemento Kino from 14 – 18 September. Check out all of our events!
We are currently looking for video- and photographers but also volunteers to help before, during and after the festival.
Promote your brand during the annual festival or at a range of exclusive film previews, movie nights or other events.
This month’s ’10 Questions with…’ is a group effort as we spread the love between 5 of our full-length films showing at this year’s Down Under Berlin festival. Documentary, love story drama, thriller, animation adventure and Aussie romantic comedy, we ask about the films and also about themselves in two questions each. Speed dating, for film buffs.
Come and join Down Under Berlin at the Lange Nacht der Film Festivals Saturday, August 20th! We are so happy to be involved that we have selected a special group of short films from last years DUB festival to show off film from Australia and New Zealand. See you there!
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!

The Down Under Berlin film festival has been a vital hub for enthusiasts of Australian and New Zealand cinema and culture since 2011. Ranging from independent productions to blockbusters, from student or professional short films to inspiring documentaries – diversity is the most important part of the program.
The festival’s focus on Down Under is an exception in Europe and absolutely unique in Germany. The festival returns 14 – 18 September 2016 to Moviemento cinema in Berlin. Besides the five-day event in autumn, Down Under Berlin hosts events throughout the year. Read more
