LiliBorn and raised in Vienna as a Swiss and German and gained experience in theatre there. While studying film and anthropology in Berlin and Istanbul, work in film and festival contexts: as a program assistant at ALFILM, the Arab Film Festival in Berlin, as Youth Advisor at Locarno Film Festival, as a film critic and at the Cinémathèque de Tanger. The master’s degree in Cultural Journalism at the University of the Arts in Berlin has increasingly led to writing and to further topics, now working as a freelance journalist on culture and society.
