Happy to announce my membership at dok.at the Austrian Documentary Film Alliance. dok.at is the only professional film association in Austria dedicated to supporting documentary film and acts as a film and media specific lobby for all documentary film makers. Founded in 2000, it currently consists of over 100 members, including directors, editors, directors of photography, producers and production companies. Besides actively participating in the national professional guilds, dok.at represents the interests of documentary film makers opposite public and privately owned television companies, fights for improvements within funding organizations and engages in all political, social and legal issues relevant to documentary film and those involved in its development. The increased international success of Austrian documentary films and its growing impact in Austria has resulted in the continuous expansion of the activities of dok.at.

"Fresh off of what we at IndieWire affectionately dubbed 'Dog-Gate'. 'Good Time' star Robert Pattinson has devoted an entire short film to a healthier kind of dog obsession: The New York City hot dog. Released by GQ, the wacky and short comedy was written by Pattinson himself, and clearly takes some inspiration from his time spent shooting with New York filmmaking brothers Josh and Benny Safdie." - IndieWire.com
"Two New York Film Academy Documentary alumni had their hand in the video, as both Susi Dollnig and Nina Thomas work at the post-production company House of Trim, which provided the post-production for the video. Dollnig was the Colorist and Thomas was the Assistant Editor on this specific video." - Frank Pasquine Check out the article here: www.nyfa.edu
"While the luxury sector is slow to take on new strategies, those that chose to be unique and innovative stood out among the rest in 2016. The company’s fall “Loyalty is Everything” effort gathered personalities including designer Tory Burch, blogger Susanna Lau and model Caroline de Maigret to discuss their devotion to everything from their hometown to new experiences. While designed as a promotion for DFS’ Loyal T program, none of the individuals soke directly to their relationship with the retailer, allowing their stories to resonate on a human level." - Luxury Daily For more information visit www.luxurydaily.com
"The salty sea air and characteristic peat infuse aging casks there with a signature brininess and smokiness — and fierce sense of origin. Large-scale distilleries have inhabited the small Hebridean island since 1779, when Bowmore settled in; a new one called Gartbreck is set to open there this spring. And this year Laphroaig, arguably the smokiest of the distilleries on Islay, celebrates its 200th anniversary." - T-Magazine
"Berends' film follows the inhabitants of the Nuba Mountains, who are under a constant barrage of attacks from the Sudanese government (the instruments of war are so commonplace, that the children even mold toy models of RPGs and machine gun-mounted tanks out of clay). This unflinching look at a war-torn group of people focuses on Madina and her fervent dream to return home — if only a pair of ruby slippers could do some magic here." - IndieWire Check out the full interview with director Andrew Berends' here: www.indiewire.com
