Salon 14 is dedicated to the individual cine-
matic development and discovery of all
its members. It offers a platform, where they don’t have to please an audience or meet certain standards. The work of each member is reflected by the group and thereby gets an opportunity to advance through continuous practical work and an open dialogue. The following set of rules is solely there to maintain discipline – making up the fundament for a free filmic exchange:

I. Every member produces a film for each meeting.
II. We all accept the rules and requirements agreed upon.
III. All decisions are made on a democratic basis.
IV. It is our duty to produce and discuss during our active time.
V. In each meeting, a subject and a technical specification is set up and the films have to meet them. In case of divergence, the filmmaker has to explain why.
VI. Those who don’t make a film have to come up with a further production due on the next meeting. Additionally, they have to produce a penalty film due at the meeting after the next.
VII. If the film is not accepted by the plenum, the filmmaker has to make alterations until the next meeting.
VIII. The plenum sets up individual conditions for each penalty film.
