Good Pitch² Australia 2014
Good Pitch², a social impact documentary forum, is coming to Australia. Supported by Philanthropy Australia and Pro Bono Australia, Good Pitch brings together documentary filmmakers with foundations, NGOs, campaigners, philanthropists, policy makers, brands and media around leading social and environmental issues - to forge coalitions and campaigns that are good for all these partners, good for the films and good for society.
A partnership between BRITDOC and Sundance Institute Documentary Film Program, Good Pitch has been gaining momentum since the first international event in 2009. Running several times throughout the year, it convenes specially selected attendees with filmmakers to form powerful alliances around groundbreaking films. The world leading forum for social impact documentary will hold its first Australian event in Sydney on the 8th October 2014.
Each of the filmmaking teams selected have just 7 minutes to pitch their film and associated outreach campaign. Afterwards the moderator leads a feedback session from participants around the roundtable and from the floor. A good pitch will lead to new sources of funding, and access to mass membership, research and experts, archives and lobbying.
