Director Biography - Lin Franke

Holding a Master’s degree in Creative Writing/Cultural Studies, Lin Franke is a talented storyteller with over 10 years of work experience in the arts, media and film industries.

She is passionate about big ideas and bringing them to life; that’s why she loves film and working for festivals.

With her artistic work she wants to tell stories that are over-the-top, foolhardy, true to form, and deeply moving – shaped by her own queer feminist and political perspective, her East German heritage and identity as a white cis woman. She also has a fascination for couple constellations, for example in small spaces like kitchens, cars, swimming pools. As well as for scenes set in deserts.

She lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
