Biography

Markus Dietrich was born in Strausberg on July 26 1979. In 1999, he was one of the co-founders of the film collective Maniac film, and in 2001, he studied theatre in Berlin for a short period of time. The same year, he received a scholarship, and in 2001, he enrolled at the Bauhaus University in Weimar where he studied media design. In addition to this, he started working in script development, became an assistant to filmmaker Gordian Maugg and completed several shorts films.

Following his graduation in 2006, Dietrich continued his education in film, and between 2007 and 2008, he was a directing stipendiary at the Thalia theatre in Halle, where he later helmed several stage productions.
In 2007, Dietrich was a co-founder of the production company Gruppe Weimar, a label under which he completed numerous, often award-winning shorts. "Mein Robodad" and "Outsourcing" were part of German Film's Next Generation Reel and premiered at the Cannes IFF. Moreover, "Outsourcing" won the Murnau Short Film Award. His childrens' short film "Teleportation" premiered at the 2009 Berlin IFF.

In 2012, Dietrich started work on his feature film debut "Sputnik". The fantastic story of a couple of East-German kids who miraculously cause the opening of the German-German-boarder in 1989 is set for a release in late 2013.
