What we're about

Screenwriting I Movies I TV-Shows I Spec Scripts I Writing

We are a community of film and television writers based in Berlin. In addition to getting an opportunity to get feedback on your project, we offer events for networking and talking writing, seminars and classes to improve our writing skills, and more. Anyone is welcome, whether you are a seasoned professional, just starting out learning the craft of screenwriting, or a fan of the art. Please, come right in, make yourself comfortable, you found the right place.

In this group we run ideas by others, learn from our mistakes and help each other to achieve what you probably have been dreaming of achieving for quite a while now: finishing that (damn) script of yours! (pardon our French :). It's a safe place and we want you to feel good about your work.

We look forward to having you!

Come and hang out & lets talk about stories!

The Pitching Round is Back!

Needs a location

It's time once again to pitch your Film/TV projects and ideas!

Everyone who pitches will be entered into a drawing for a copy of Final Draft 12!

Here's your opportunity to pitch your project and get some valuable feedback from your peers! This is a safe space to test out and improve your ideas and pitching skills.

We will schedule pitches on a first come, first served basis. If you would like to pitch, put your name in a comment below.

Please prepare your pitches to go no longer than 5 minutes. This will be followed up by Q&A from the other members in the group.

Here are some best practices for pitching:

  1. Be confident and excited about your project. If you can't get excited, no one else will.
  2. Be concise but include the genre, main character's dilemma and arc, the story's hook.
  3. Stick to what's important--major story beats. Secondary characters, B stories and dialogue, for example, are not necessary.
  4. Tell why this story resonates with you. Why is it important for you to tell this story. Also, why is it relevant today? These are questions you'll be asked in a real pitch, so it's good to be prepared for this.

We will be located in the back room (now with a pool table!).

To keep a better idea of how many people will be there, please update your RSVP if you register and then cannot make it.
