Good Pitch at Tribeca took place on April 27th at the Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian. Almost 200 different organisations took part - not just broadcasters and foundations but campaigners, philanthropists, policy makers, technologists, brands and branding agencies. The 8 films pitched were superb and beautifully presented and the conversations about opportunities that followed each one were rich, insightful, generous and surprising. Topics covered ranged from school bullying to employment rights for those with disabilities and took us all around the USA and around the world to the Philippines, Kenya and Malawi. The energy in the room was fantastic and the networking and connections continued long after the event finished in the designated bar. We look forward to hearing about all the new partnerships which will emerge. Here's a few pics - enjoy!

Films

  • A Small Act

    A Kenyan boy's life is dramatically changed when his education is sponsored by a Swedish stranger. Years later, Chris Mburu founds his own scholarship program to replicate the kindness he once received. But, a wave of violence tears through Kenya and threatens the potential impact of Chris' fund.

  • American Promise

    In 1999, two African American boys begin kindergarten at a prestigious college prep school. Their parents have high hopes for what this school will mean for their sons' future. As the years unfold we glimpse the complex challenges African American boys face from their earliest experiences in school.

  • Bully (formerly The Bully Project)

    .

  • DETROPIA

    Can Motor City rise from its ashes? Americans hope so, as there is a growing feeling that as Detroit goes, so goes the nation. This film tells the dramatic story of a city and its most innovative people who refuse to leave the building, even as the flames are rising.

  • Give Up Tomorrow

    As a tropical storm beats down on the Philippine island of Cebu, two sisters leave work and never make it home... GIVE UP TOMORROW exposes a Kafkaesque world of corruption and injustice. In a murder case that ends a country’s use of capital punishment, but fails to free an innocent man, two grieving mothers personify the chasms that divide the Philippines.

  • Monica & David

    MONICA & DAVID explores the marriage of two adults with Down syndrome and the family who strives to support their needs. Monica and David are exceptionally caring and witty individuals, who want what most other adults want—love, work and independence.

  • The Anderson Monarchs

    The Anderson Monarchs is about an all-girls soccer team competing, living, and thriving in an at-risk urban neighborhood in Philadelphia.

  • William And The Windmill

    In 2001, William Kamkwamba dropped out of school due to a devastating famine. Through self-education, he saw a windmill in a textbook. Using found materials, he built a windmill that powered his village and changed his life, using imagination and ingenuity to inspire a family, a village, and a nation.
