The second stop for The Good Pitch in North America will be at SILVERDOCS: AFI/Discovery Channel Documentary Festival June 18-22nd, near Washington, D.C. The Good Pitch at SILVERDOCS is now open for submissions. The deadline is Monday, March 16, 2009.
The Good Pitch is a unique opportunity for filmmakers to pitch social-issue documentary projects and associated campaign strategies to an audience of NGOs, foundations, campaigners, advertising agencies, brands and media. Last summer we co-hosted the inaugural Good Pitch at the BRITDOC Film Festival, and had a spectacular time.
The Good Pitch at SILVERDOCS welcomes submissions from directors and producers of any nationality with an ambition to work in partnership to harness the power of documentary to create positive change. Your campaign can take any form, whether seeking to promote public engagement and/or policy change, or engaging with the issues raised in new and interesting ways.
The third Good Pitch in North America will be at IFP’s Independent Film Week, so check back for updates and more opportunities.
