Make It Home
With its long history of migration, Australia and New Zealand have become a new home for millions, many of whom search for their ancestral homes in other parts of the world. A home away from home: In the special focus Aussies Abroad we took a look at a number of filmmakers from Down Under who have found their cinematic inspiration in places and people all around the globe.
The plurality of home means that we can find it in unexpected places, and with people who become our family. In September 2014, the Down Under Berlin festival took its audience on a thrilling cinematic journey through historic moments in Australian film as well as modern features, examining the concepts of home and belonging within Australia and throughout the world. In 2014 we MADE IT HOME.
