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.
Craig Harwood, Threshold Foundation
Storytellers, artists, changemakers and heros - everyone who makes sure the story doesn't end with the film, but starts from there. No one else cooks up this kind of stew but Good Pitch - fortifying us all to go out and ensure these stories are told and the world is called to respond.
Sarah Williams, Propel Capital
Good Pitch is a very unique opportunity to embrace the power of visual storytelling , the potential of strong partnerships, and – most of all – the joy of making a difference.
Dominik Prinz, Interbrand
There was a decision made to really go local, because that's where the grassroots organising was happening and that's where the base was being built. Every community in the country could use a Good Pitch Local as injustice is everywhere.
Cara Mertes, Just Film, Ford Foundation
Good Pitch Local not only connected me to innovative filmmakers and change agents, but it also provided me with a fresh perspective and appreciation for the power of film and media in creating long lasting change in our communities. I walked away with new partners, ideas and stories to share.
Daniel Gibson, Allegany Franciscan Ministries
Good Pitch Local was amazing! There was a dynamic and electric synergy between pitchers and local organizations. I left feeling energized and ready to amplify stories that can have an impact in my hometown. If you believe that your community needs more powerful narratives, then Good Pitch local is the place to be!
Ani Mercedes, Impact Producer
The Impact Lab has given me clarity and structure in how to plan and strategize impact campaigns. Seeing case studies of how others have done well gives hope and inspiration that we are part of a bigger movement and that we can do it too. Getting to meet so many other amazing people, both from the US and Africa, assures me that I'll always have people I can reach out to for support with my future impact campaigns.
Shuling Yong, Media for Social Change, Chicago
One of the biggest values of the lab for me was to be connected to a bigger community of wise, fierce, effective people who are experimenting with different models. There was a strong foundation of sharing a number and variety of excellent models to use as a reference for thinking about / building impact campaigns - but also for having resources / people who built those campaigns, who we can each connect to to drill in further in the future.
Anya Rous, Resource Generation, New York.
Good Pitch was the best professional experience i have ever had in terms of fundraising and elevating awareness of my work as a filmmaker. It was also extremely soul-nourishing due to the spirit of authentic support, collaboration and camaraderie amongst staff and filmmakers.
Joanna Lipper, The Supreme Price
It has been an eye opener. A fantastic experience which has led me to see a whole new world for future relationship building and distribution.

The Impact Field Guide has been an invaluable resource for my last documentary and I am excited about using it for future projects.
Ishaya Bako, Filmmaker, Nigeria
The Impact Field guide is a great tool to systemise all your thoughts and ideas. On top of this the guide works as an inspiration and catalyst for clever reflections.
Mette Bjerregaard, Producer, Denmark
I LOVE the Impact Field Guide and I regularly recommend it to colleagues and friends to look at and organise their thoughts. It's a beast of a resource and it's brilliant to know that it will be translated into other languages.
Elhum Shakerifar, Impact Producer, UK
The Impact Field Guide is extremely inspirational! And I love all the concrete examples. It's been essential for the planning of our impact campaigns and also in strengthening the whole international field of impact producing! The impact guide is one of the most important tools for filmmakers who want to create a change!
Julia Dahr, Filmmaker, Norway
I never had the tools, the skill set, nor a mentor to realise the full potential of documentary. The Impact Field Guide has provided me with a solid structure to build a dream documentary and the dream documentaries of others. The guide is handsome and useful and we should not take it for granted – not everyone with a successful blue print is willing to share trade secrets.
