Two weeks ago:

“JANNE & HENRI” was selected from 75 submissions and got invited as one out of 9 projects to the First Steps Masterclass “Schreiben für das große Publikum” (“Writing for the big audience”).

Pro Quote Regie Kampagne

I’m very proud to be a part of the Berlinale Campaign of Pro Quote Regie – this is the union of female filmmakers in Germany. We are still under-represented with only 15% of the films produced being directed by women.

Visit the Pro Quote Regie Bubble on Potsdamer Platz during Berlinale Filmfestival from February 10 – 19th.

Two new festivals for “Nordstadt, was los?”

“Nordstadt, was los?” is gonna be screened on two fabulous film festivals.

From Oct 19th – 23rd in Halle, Magdeburg and Stendal in a programme called “Gesellschaftsaspekte – Kulturunterschiede” during Filmkunsttage Sachsen-Anhalt 2016. We are thrilled that this programme has been set up especially for fugitives that are taking part in german language classes. AND we will be there on  21st and 23rd !

Videofilmtage 2016 in Koblenz has been chosen our film as one of 14 finalists (out of 302 !) and is gonna take place on Nov 4th – 5th. We are so happy !
