DAE Member Exclusives: Story Room project development group, exclusive members-only delegations and discounts

We are so pleased to meet many of you in person again at the spring and summer markets after this long separation. We will also continue to organise online members meet-ups to keep you up-to-date on our activities, association business and to offer our members transparency.

If you haven’t signed up for the association yet, you can do so here

DAE Story Room starting April 29
The Story Room, 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, will kick off Friday April 29. This is not a public stage but a monthly meet-up where filmmakers can present and discuss challenges during development, 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 the 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 will be led and facilitated by DAE senior consultant Laura Kloeckner.
To register, please send an email to storyroom@dae-europe.org with the subject Story Room 2022 with a few lines about you and your project.
