Each year, the unusual, the unseen, the moving and the unconventional can be discovered at the Berlinale (or Berlin International Film Festival). Short film curator Maike Mia H�hne has grown the "Berlinale Shorts" into one of the most esteemed showcases for short films in the world. For the "Berlinale Shorts go Exterior" programme, a sample of the films from the Berlinale in 2013 will be screened. The films are brought to New Zealand by Hamburg-based curator and filmmaker Stefanie Reis.

The screening programme will start at 6.30pm, and there will be a brief Q&A session afterwards.
Presented in association with CoLab and supported by AUT University, the Goethe-Institut, New Zealand Film Commission, Women In Film and Television Incorporated New Zealand, and The Film Archive
