Good Pitch بالعربي (in Arabic) will be held on 25th August 2020 as a virtual event.

Beirut DC is hosting the first-ever edition of Good Pitch بالعربي for films from the Arab world. They will bring together Arab filmmakers with leading change makers around urgent social issues to forge new coalitions that are good for the films and good for society.

4 documentaries and 1 fiction film from Lebanon, Egypt and Tunisia will be pitched to a virtual audience of more than 250 change-makers from all over the region and the world. Tackling some of the defining issues of our time - climate change, the refugee crisis, gender roles, identity, government accountability - these films all hold enormous potential for social impact. With the right partners, each of these films has the power to challenge and provoke, to create debate and change lives.

Beirut DC is an internationally established organization striving to empower filmmakers and audiences from every corner of the Arab world.

We believe in the power of film as a driver for change, in access to independent cinema as a right to all communities, across class and culture, and in the right of Arab artists to choose their own narratives. We create resources, events, and virtual and physical spaces that bring filmmakers, communities and civil society closer, paving the way for radical and transformative collaboration.
