ABOUT DINKA BONELLE DZUBUR
Classically trained international Actress, Screenwriter and Film Producer, Dinka Bonelle Dzubur is a gifted new addition to the world of cinema.

Entranced by her love of language, art, performance, classical poise and the medium of visual story telling and film, acceptance into the prestigious intensive three-year conservatory based Acting program at QUT, Australia saw Dinka as one of four Actresses to complete the highly competitive course in 2006.

Since graduating, Dinka has lived and worked in theatre and film across the world including in Los Angeles, Sydney, Berlin, Stuttgart, Paris, Zagreb, Mostar and Bogota.

Amongst her professional credits stands an extensive list marking her collaboration with a number of highly esteemed Directors.

Dinka has appeared on stage playing a number of leading roles including Ana in “Stage Direction” by NY Studio performed at the Sydney Theatre Company & Gardens Theatre, Emelie in “Baal” by Brecht directed by Queensland Theatre Company’s Artistic Director Michael Gow, Claxton’s wife in “Light shining in Buckinghamshire” by Caryl Churchill, directed by Sean Mee, Titania in “A Midsummernight’s Dream” by Shakespeare, directed by Jennifer Flowers, principal singer and dancer in musical “The Blues Brothers” directed by Karen Crone and Yelena Popov in “The Bear” by Chekhov, directed by Peta Downes.

As an accomplished young stage actress, Dinka transitioned into film cast in a variety of genres and styles of filmmaking. Within this transition to screen came a love and enjoyment to collaborate with filmmakers in the scriptwriting and producing aspects of launching and developing a film from the ground up. She has thus far worked with a number of prolific award-winning Australian writer / directors in 2009 in a collaborative capacity and completed short films: “Warning: It May Contain Subtitles”, a black comedy directed by Jasna Krsmanovic which screened in Cannes SFC & Women on Women Film Festival, the post-war drama “Little Hands”, directed by Claire McCarthy (to be released mid 2010) and the crime and suspense thriller “11 AM” directed by Katie Hides (to be released mid 2010).

Simultaneous to her work in film, Dinka’s love of story caused her to experiment with mediums as she also completed a journalism degree from the University of Queensland (attended on scholarship) majoring in international relations , investigative journalism and political science. For her time in media, Dinka worked in her preferred media domain as a print and photo-journalist for News Ltd and also had a stint working for the UN in EU.

Dinka cites her work in media and print-journalism as a strong influence on her writing style and motivation to start writing for mediums other than news reportage. She frequently contributes to Film portals such as FilmInk, IF Film, Screen Hub and a number of other publishing outlets. A number of her creative ventures have resulted to her creative writing to be published in the Encyclopedia of International Literature. She is currently writing a book of creative prose, to be released in 2011.

When she is not working, this multi-talented, multi-lingual and multi-skilled artist loves the outdoor lifestyle and enjoys avid sports such as rock climbing, scuba diving, sprinting, skiing, water rafting, surfing and gymnastics. Not surprising to discover Dinka was a gymnast competing in sports tournaments as a teen and a dancer style-versatile: advanced in jazz, ballet, latin and modern techniques.

In serene moments, Dinka enjoys drawing and painting on canvas, practising bikram yoga, reading biographies and works from her favorite writers: Blake, Bronte, Dickinson, Bukowski, Wilde, or viewing films by her favourite filmmakers Bertolucci, Rivette, Benigni, Fellini, Bergman, Almodovar, Winterbottom, Sheridan, Tanovic, Fincher, Coppola, just to name a few.

An avid supporter of charity and philanthropist causes committed to helping children and youths in war-torn countries, Dinka continues to hold this as a priority in her professional engagements as she is affiliated with a number of international peace and reform keeping organisations such as the UN, UNICEF, NATO and OHR as well as many orphanages in war distraught countries which she frequently volunteers in and visits.

Dinka is Founder of Chandelier Films, a content (film and media) production company which makes up a collective of filmmakers, screenwriters, producers, actors and media associates. Currently on the slate are a number of long form and short form projects which are being developed and produced with Australian and international partners.

Dinka is an AWG (Australian Writers Guild) , SPAA (Screen Producers Association Australia) and MEAA (Media, Entertainment and Arts Alliance) member. She currently divides her time in between New York, Paris, Los Angeles and Sydney.
