From May 8th through May 11th, Robert McKee's world-famous seminar on storytelling was held in the Amsterdam Public Library. The seminar was organized by Sanset Pictures and supported by the Netherlands Filmfund, NCE, the Dutch Screenwriters' Network, Filmmore and Cam-A-Lot. Over 200 participants from various backgrounds were mesmerized by McKee's detailed analysis of the diversity of mechanisms that storytellers use. Receiving a minutes-long standing ovation after four days, McKee left all participants' heads ringing with his inspiring and impassioned disquisition.
