Makes good films go further

For over 10 years, Good Pitch has been connecting the world's best social justice films with new allies and partners.

“I love #goodpitch It is knickers wetting in it’s inspiration… Rock on”

Sam Roddick, Roddick Foundation

It puts together the idealism of artists with the capacity of those who can make things happen. It catalyses that chemical reaction.

Peter Nelson, Facing History and Ourselves

I see Good Pitch as one of the active and enabling signs of a humanity that wants to respond, to choose the common good, and regenerate itself with responsibility and solidarity.

Good Pitch

We bring together documentary filmmakers with leading change makers around urgent social issues to forge new coalitions that are good for the films and good for society.


Good pitch is part of what has elevated our field and has been essential to the explosion of the documentary film genres. It gives impetus to how these films live in the world to create real positive change.

Pamela Yates, Skylight

Great introduction to the power of documentaries. Be in the room where it happens. Activists, foundations, corporations, individuals all come together to make a difference. An inspiring day that will alter your thinking about how docs can be a powerful piece of your life's work to make change.
