English Podcast // Interview with DFF Director Ellen Harrington: Between Digitization and Pandemic – What is next for the DFF?

Ellen Harrington has been director of the DFF since January 2018. The fact that at that time the DFF was not even the name of the institution already gives a first impression of how dynamic the past two and  half years have been. The DFF has given itself a new name, and a reimagined mission statement which underscores the institution’s role as a bridge between the past and the future, while emphasizing its international reach. In this first episode of the new English-language podcast series „Everything is film“ Frauke Haß talks to Ellen Harrington about her ideas and visions for the DFF, and the special challenges it is currently facing in the era of digitization and pandemic.
