Good Pitch Local returns to Detroit on September 14, 2021 partnership with Detroit Narrative Agency and Trinity Films Entertainment Group. Good Pitch Local supports short-form fiction and non-fiction media projects and powerful stories from community leaders addressing issues urgent and important to local communities. It provides a powerful platform for collaboration and impact, connecting participants to resources and partners, strengthening networks and communities. The live event will feature a curated selection of pitches and presentations in an atmosphere of radical collaboration, where storytellers and change-makers connect with funders, media platforms, and partner organizations that can help ensure these stories get made and make a difference.

Good Pitch Local is about providing a platform for stories with local connections that include themes urgent and pertinent to our times from the COVID public health crisis to the racial justice movements of this past year. We welcome a broad range of other topics. Past projects have encompassed themes of criminal justice reform, climate change, education activism, profiles on local artists and leaders and much, much more.

We invite both media makers looking for partnership and support, and leaders who are at the heart of stories that need to be told to submit projects for consideration. We carefully curate the line-up, and then help the teams prepare their project pitches. At the live event up to 10 three-minute pitches are made, expert moderators call on the collective intelligence in the room, and individuals step up to offer support of all kinds to advance the projects to fruition and impact.

This will be a virtual event presented via Zoom.
