LET’S GET SERIOUS ABOUT HUMOUR.
Storycon is a one-day conference organized by the Flanders Audiovisual Fund (VAF) that focuses fully on the intricacies and craftsmanship of storytelling across different media forms such as movies, series, video games and podcasts. The aim of the conference is to inspire professional as well as aspiring audiovisual and video game storytellers to reflect on the art of storytelling and to explore different media to express their ideas.
For the 2024 edition we gleefully focus on humour. Through fascinating keynotes and interviews our international and national speakers will share insights and discoveries about how they painstakingly hone their comedic skills and are able – often through trial & error, a lot of testing and the occasional cringe reaction – to tell stories, long or short, that simultaneously resonate and delight. Join us at Storycon 2024 to discover how embracing the power of humour can help you break down barriers, provide comic relief and connect with your audience on an even deeper level than ever before!
18 APRIL 2024
9:00 – 18:00
Each keynote and interview lasts about 50 minutes. There is room for 10 minutes of Q&A after each one. We offer ample networking opportunities during the lunch break and a networking drink after the event.
The language of the conference will be English, except for the panel with Zouzou Ben Chikha, Elisabeth Lucie Baeten and Bert Scholiers, moderated by Tom Lenaerts. This panel will be in Dutch, with live subtitling in English.
