The London and New York-based Doc Society created Good Pitch in 2008 to connect media makers with creative and resource partners and advance social impact. Produced in partnership with Sundance Institute and the Ford Foundation, Good Pitch events have raised more than $30 million for films and their impact campaigns in 15 countries, showcasing media that matters and makes a difference.
Good Pitch Local shares this model of curated networking with new partners and places, meeting growing interest in evolving forms of media production and distribution with a focus on short, long, documentary, fiction, and multi-platform storytelling. The initiative supports high-impact projects by connecting media makers with local funders, organizers, educators, lawyers, policy makers, and press to shape innovative media that can galvanize communities and promote civic engagement.
