The Story Room, is a cosy virtual hub open to all DAE filmmakers working on a project, eager to engage and share with other DAE filmmakers across the world.

We distinguish between (Pre-)Development / Production Story Room & Rough Cut Story Room which will happen interchangeably with three project presentations per 2-hour session.

This is not a public stage but a bi-monthly meet-up where filmmakers can present and discuss challenges during development or post-production, seek advice before going into the open or listen in to other projects, collecting and sharing resources.
Even if you’re early on in your project or just curious to meet new people, this group is for you. The Story Room will open every last Friday of every other month. The Story Room will also invite industry professionals from various fields for inputs tailored to the needs of the group in four sessions during this cycle.

The Story Room is led and facilitated by DAE senior consultants Laura Kloeckner and Mariia Ponomarova.

Our next (exceptional) Story Room session will be on 31 May, 15:00–17:00 CEST. 
The group will focus on projects in the rough-cut stage. We are looking forward to hosting two project presentations.

Even if you are not presenting a project, benefit from the knowledge of the group, contribute to the discussion and meet other DAE filmmakers from across the world. Members only, to register, please fill in this form and send an email to storyroom@dae-europe.org with a short description of your project to arrange for a slot.

The DAE Story Room is an off-the-stage safe space for sharing and exchange for all its participants.
Therefore, we have created a Community Agreement that all participants agree to when they enter this space. Please find it here for review before joining.
