Eline Gehring

director

Eline Gehring began her career in 2006 as a camerawoman and editor for German news coverage in Paris, Prague, Kiev and Berlin. She shot a documentary in St Petersburg for the German Bundestag and in 2008 she worked for Deutsche Welle in Cairo. Her stations also took her to South Africa, where she developed short films, documentaries and social spots for NGOs in 2011. In 2013, she took up directing studies at the Deutsche Film- und Fernsehakademie Berlin (German Film and Television Academy – DFFB) and directed short films that premiered at international film festivals.

As co-director, she worked on the documentary HELMUT BERGER, MEINE MUTTER UND ICH produced by Edition Salzgeber in 2016. In the same year, she began to work on her feature film debut NICO that later in 2021 won the Young Acting Award for Sara Fazilat in the leading role at its world premiere in the feature film competition at the 42nd Max Ophüls Preis Film Festival. Numerous other festival participations and awards followed. In 2022 NICO is shortlisted for the German Film Award.

Since 2021, Eline Gehring has been developing her second feature film.
