Berlinale Talents: Diana Fabiánová

A native of Bratislava, Diana Fabiánová graduated in Mass Media and Journalism in 2003, and in 2005 in Documentary Direction at Barcelona University’s ESCAC (Graduate School of Cinema and Audiovisual in Catalonia). At the end of the same year she received a scholarship to pursue an intensive Directing Documentaries course with Michael Rabiger at the Mallorca Film Academy.

Diana is the writer-director of the award-winning feature, The Moon Inside You (orig. Mesiac v nás, ES, SK, FR), premiered, as the first Slovak entry ever, in the selection of the Semaine de la Critique at the 62nd Film Festival Locarno, and has since been shown in over 150 international film festivals all over the world (IDFA, Chicago, Montreal, Guadalajara, Sydney ect.). Co-produced by ARTE, the film was pre-bought by a large number of television networks as well as by the US educational programme MED for Colleges and Universities. It was released in Spain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Diana’s short documentary for children Monthlies (orig. Mesiačiky, SK) , was produced via crowd funding campaign. The film was supported by people from 33 countries around the world. Its global premiere took place in one day, at over 200 screenings in 22 different countries.

Currently, Diana is developing the script for a fiction movie based on a true adventurous story. Her second feature documentary Happily (Un)faithful about infidelity in different cultural and social contexts is now in development. She is also preparing a feature documentary about prenatal psychology.
