What we're about

Welcome to the New York City chapter of StoryForward, a group dedicated to exploring the future of storytelling and entertainment.

StoryForward NYC is led by Eric Roffman, following the original group organizer, Jen Begeal (http://www.linkedin.com/in/jenbegeal).

We will focus now on how all the story arts, especially theater, film, video, and print, but also music and dance and art, can and will move forward as we work our way through this transitional isolationist period, into a post-COVID world.

We are partnered with NYXR, the New York eXtended Reality Meetup. eXtended Reality (XR) consists of all the technology and content and issues that arise from the exponential growth of digital technology. XR will affect stories profoundly. It already has.

StoryForward will tend to focus on the changes taking place related to content. NYXR will tend to focus more on the technical side of change. Many topics, ideas, and projects will relate to both content and technology.

We host monthly meetups, workshops, and other events celebrating the leaders, the ideas and the techniques of storytelling in the 21st Century.

StoryForward's mission is to connect people, curate experiences, and incubate projects from around the world.

Please join us on our journey as we continue to educate, inspire and innovate the storytelling experience.

Welcome aboard!
