Having studied directing and cinematography at Berlin's German Film and Television Academy (1994 - 1999), Florian Hoffmeister quickly established himself as a distinct, versatile young voice amongst internationally working cinematographers. 

His work includes acclaimed international tv projects such as 5 DAYS (nominated for the 2008 Golden Globe), HOUSE OF SADDAM (2009 BAFTA Nomination Best Photography Fiction), AMC's remake of THE PRISONER (2010 EMMY Nomination Best Cinematography Miniseries or Movie), as well as Terence Davies' THE DEEP BLUE SEA, starring Rachel Weisz.

His directorial debut 3 DEGREES COLDER won him a Silver Leopard for best first feature at the 2005 Locarno International Film Festival.

In 2012 / 2013 he became the first cinematographer to win an EMMY, a BAFTA, as well as the prestigious ASC Award with the same program: his work on the TV mini series GREAT EXPECTATIONS.
