On June 17, 2014, our Good Pitch flagship event returned to New York for the sixth year running - this time at Asia Society & Museum. In 2014, we extended our mentorship for filmmakers with two workshops over the year; the first took place in March and the second on the eve of the live Good Pitch event in June.

Films

  • 3½ Minutes, Ten Bullets

    Three and a half minutes and ten bullets. One unarmed boy is dead. The film 3½ MINUTES, TEN BULLETS dissects the shooting death of 17-year-old Jordan Davis, the aftermath of this systemic tragedy, and contradictions within the American criminal justice system.

  • Care

    Six out of ten people will eventually need eldercare. Do you know who will care for you? The feature documentary CARE exposes the deep flaws in the U.S. eldercare system, by telling the intimate stories of four overworked and underpaid home health aides, counterpointed by the struggles of two families seeking affordable, quality home care for an aging loved one.

  • SEED: The Untold Story

    SEED tells the harrowing and heartening story of humans' long-standing relationship with seeds. As many irreplaceable seeds near extinction, SEED follows farmers, scientists, and seed collectors protecting the diversity of 12,000 years of agriculture. Their story unveils a David and Goliath battle for the future of our seeds and an impending global food crisis.

  • Silas (formerly Logs of War)

    Please contact the filmmakers if you would like to see the trailer or have any more information about the film -- info@logsofwar.com

  • The Pearl (formerly Brick)

    The Pearl explores the raw emotional and physical experience of being a middle aged/senior transgender woman against the backdrop of post-industrial logging towns in the Pacific Northwest. The Pearl leans into the struggle of those who have been reared and successful at being men and have reached middle age or later with a burdensome secret that they can no longer keep.

  • The Return

    In November 2012, voters amended California's "three strikes law" — one of the harshest criminal laws ever written — the first time in U.S. history that citizens voted to shorten sentences of the currently incarcerated. Within days, the release of thousands of lifers — men and women once expecting to die in prison — was underway. At a moment of national reckoning on mass incarceration, what can California's experiment teach the nation?

  • Virunga

    VIRUNGA is the incredible true story of a group of brave people risking their lives to build a better future in a part of Africa the world has forgotten, one of the most bio-diverse places in the world and home to the last of the mountain gorillas. It is a gripping expose of a UNESCO World Heritage site under threat from armed militias, poachers and companies struggling to control Congo's rich natural resources. The film had its World Premiere at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival.
