Oliver Broumis (2012)

Oliver Broumis is a German actor. He was born in Hannover, Germany at July 31, 1965, where he grew up.


Right after College he went to the Hamburg University of Music and Dramatic arts for a 4 years education in acting. Since then, he also did a lot of training in Los Angeles with M. K. Lewis (Film Tech), Sam Christensen (S. Chr. Process) and Frank Betzelt, Berlin (Meisner technique). He began his professional life with the German/Swiss film "Immer & Ewig" aka "Always & Forever", a modern version of the Jean-Paul Sartre play "Les Jeux sont faits" aka "The Game is over". At the same time he also started in theaters all over Germany with plays of Shakespeare, Goethe and others.

Through the war movies Stalingrad and Hasenjagd aka The Quality of Mercy he discovered his fondness and ability to play emotional disturbed and volatile characters.

In 2002 his interest in film politics made him one of the co-founders of the "film.lounge.berlin", a meeting and networking spot for the Berlin film industry.

In 2004 he played the German zoologist and wild life activist Bernhard Grzimek who was responsible for the conservation of natural world heritage like the Tanzanian Serengeti National Park. As a boy of 4 years he grew up with Bernhard Grzimek's monthly TV show and he decided to become this fighting man – 3 decades later that happened.

Also in 2004 he produced the documentary "Zwischen Kopf und Himmel" of a young first time director. It is a movie about the life of women in East Africa.

He is working with a German director on the script of "Rigby". A film about death and the process of dying. The story explores the question if you are able to live in the presence of your own mortality and transience, what benefits for your life you will get out of it ?! For research he worked a few weeks in a local hospice. He will also play the main part in the film.

In 2013 he did the "Raindance Berlin Documentary Foundation Course" (Raindance Film Festival) to expand his abilities as a filmmaker because he started working on two Documentaries for the first time.

He is a member of the German Film Academy (Deutsche Filmakademie), European Film Academy and the German Screen Actors Guild (BFFS).
