LIN ALLUNA - DIRECTOR

linBilledeNYT.JPG

I express myself through character-driven documentaries, filmed all over the world. In 2017, I graduated as one of the six directors, admitted to the elite documentary art academy program at the National Film School of Denmark, and was selected as one of the new “Nordic Talents” that same year by Nordisk Film & TV Fond. It was during my four years in this intense program I got to develop my personal cinematic style, that revolves around the female gaze and dissolving the limits of reality.

On top op of my work as a director I teach filmmaking e.g. as a guest consultant at The National Film School of Denmark and producer at Station Next (talent development program for young filmmakers in Denmark) and I am the director’s representative adviser at FAF (danish filmmakers guild) as well as co-founder and spokesperson for Oplysningsgruppen (interest group for higher education of filmmakers in Denmark)
