The festival is not just another Zoom you have to attend. We have prepared it to adapt to your daily rhythm and let you decide when you want to join us.
Every day – for two weeks – you get another piece of the puzzle every day. However, they are different forms of different lengths.
Beyond the stories themselves – there is something else that is most difficult to recreate online – the feeling that it is an experience that affects both you and other festival participants. We want to give you an opportunity to immerse in this experience in two ways:
By inviting you to a cooking class and a dinner that a chef from Peru will prepare with you, to talk to a world's greatest cartoonists or a robot creator. We do not create "presentations", but multimedia experiences of which you become a part.
By providing you with a common space for the duration of the festival. There, extra materials and information will be published, it will also be possible to talk, have a coffee or ask our speakers a question.

There is a lot of innovation happening both in media and in storytelling right now. We are in a historical moment of a big transformation in how we communicate and there is nothing more important to do now than to come together.
We invite you to join a conversation about the future of storytelling and about how we can better connect with each other.
