15.02.2017 - David OReilly, moderated by Maike Mia Höhne
Famous for stripping down 3D graphics to the point of absurdity, the animated films of young Irish-born filmmaker and artist David OReilly have garnered over 80 awards, including the Golden Bear. Having recently stormed the world of video game and app development, OReilly’s œuvre awes in its defiance of traditional aesthetics and formats. Taking time away from the premiere of his newest "game-that-is-also-a-film," Everything, in competition at Berlinale Shorts, OReilly recounts his meteoric career and the choices and chances that landed him in the world of games.
The programme curator of Berlinale Shorts since 2007, Maike Mia Höhne is also a freelance writer, director, curator and photographer. Her short films are represented by the Arsenal - Institute for Film and Video Art in Berlin and the Short Film Agency in Hamburg. In 2014, she presented her first feature film, “3/4”, at Filmfest Hamburg. She also teaches at the Hamburg Media School and the University of Fine Arts, Hamburg.
