Raised in a conservative leaning village in the Black Forest/Germany, Philipp Klinger found refuge early on in art, theatre, writing and of course cinema. After graduating from high school as a Scheffel Award recipient and completing a media design apprenticeship, he worked as an editor and director’s assistant for feature films and advertising. With his first short film as an author and director, he managed to get accepted to Film Academy Baden-Württemberg, where he studied directing on a scholarship from the German Academic Scholarship Foundation. In 2014, he completed a semester abroad at Kadir Has University in Istanbul/Turkey. ALBTRÄUMER is his first feature-length film. Klinger lives and works in Berlin.
