Storyology 2014

Metro Screen is thrilled to partner with Storyology a four-day festival that brings together journalists, screenwriters, authors, satirists, entrepreneurs, multimedia gurus, documentary-makers, photographers, producers and bloggers in a space to inspire, foster collaborations, and encourage experimentation and bold ideas.

"Journalism has changed a lot in the last five years, particularly with so many readers now moving to the internet... (Journalists) need to know how to aggregate information, research, connect with new people online, write text, take photos, shoot videos, publish them and promote their own works," says guest speaker Nivell Rayda from The Jakarta Globe.

From December 1-4, the Chauvel Cinema and Metro Screen will be the home of Storyology 2014.
