Event of the Week: Good Pitch New York
One of the most successful alternative funding and support events for the documentary industry in recent years, Good Pitch, returns to the stage in 2013 with their New York event on 30 April.
A partnership between BRITDOC and Sundance Institute Documentary Film Program, Good Pitch brings together documentary filmmakers with foundations, NGOs, campaigners, philanthropists, policy makers, brands and media around leading social and environmental issues.
The goal is to forge coalitions and campaigns that are good for all these partners, good for the films and good for society.
This year there are seven selected films and each of the filmmaking teams has just seven minutes to pitch their film and associated outreach campaign.
After the pitch, the moderator leads a feedback session from participants around the table and from the floor. The event can lead to funding, support, valuable introductions, expertise and joined lobbying efforts – to name just a few.
