APEIRON FILMS is based in Berlin but produces and screens movies in cinemas all over Europe. Our taste, style and range of genres flicker. Simplicity, romance, magic, ordinary life or miniatures come into focus, but we also deal with drama, art, comedy, and the love-death dichotomy of homo ludens.
Our mission to entertain or inspire audiences and to activate filmmakers takes us to many places. Clarity, serenity and self irony manifest in our productions.
Director & Producer Dave Lojek was born in East-Berlin in 1975. He belongs to the most selected filmmakers at international festivals and has produced over 150 shorts by 2015.
He received his MA in English / American and Cultural Studies from Humboldt-University Berlin.
As independent autodidactic filmmaker he travels to festivals and workshops. Dave organizes annual film workshops called KinoKabarets with the initiative KinoBerlino and constantly augments a network of avantgarde film people. In his seminars, Dave teaches the art of short film making and distribution.
His method of uplifting and intense co-creation inspires several independent film groups. Dave hosts monthly open short film nights in Berlin's oldest cinema Moviemento and invites new talents to join the non-competitive show.
Dave works as president of the Video- and Film Association Berlin / Brandenburg, which is member of the BDFA (Bundesverband Deutscher Film-Autoren) – Association of German Film Authors. Dave’s multimedia works have been published in numerous journals, anthologies, on DVDs and online. His productions are broadcast weekly. The shorts have been screened over 600 times at over 420 international film festivals and won 66 awards and nominations.
