Alice Englert made her acting debut in a short film, The Water Diary, directed by her mother, Jane Campion..

Now the young actress (whose credits include Sally Potter's Ginger and Rosa and BBC One's Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell) has made one of her own.

The Boyfriend Game premiered at Tiff last year, but Englert couldn't attend - "I was in New Zealand acting in a film. It was a bummer not to go".

The film has now been invited to the Berlinale, and Englert won't miss it.

The Boyfriend Game was shot over two days at the Colo River in Nsw, and is about "two little girls, friends, playing a game they've created at a farmhouse in the Australian bush. They discover difficulties when they become competitive over one of their imaginary boyfriends"..

"I came up with the idea because I was once an eleven year-old girl »

- Harry Windsor
