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!

Pitching Round - Pitch Your Project

Fotostudio F30

Here's your opportunity to pitch your project or idea and get some valuable feedback! This is a safe space to tell us about your idea and to test out and improve your pitching skills. We will schedule pitches on a first come, first served basis. So if you would like to pitch, add a comment below. Please prepare your pitches to go no longer than 3-5 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. Next month we'll have the Feedback Round. Those who pitch in this event will get first priority next month to receive feedback on script pages or treatment. The meetup is in Wedding at Stettiner Str. 30, 13357 Berlin. The name above the space is "Fotostudio F30" and it's beside a small Späti. Feel free to bring your own drinks.
