Good Pitch بالعربي

23rd June 2020

Good Pitch بالعربي (in Arabic) will be held in June 2020.

Beirut DC is hosting the first ever edition of Good Pitch بالعربي for films from the Arab world on the 23rd of June 2020. Four documentary films addressing urgent regional socio-political issues and, for the first time ever in Good Pitch history, one fiction project.

From Lebanon, Egypt and Tunisia, the film teams will pitch their film projects to an 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.

Founded in 1999, the mission of Beirut DC is to:

-Encourage and enhance a creative cinematic movement in the Arab World through varying modes of promotion, production, training and coproduction meetings

-Support Arab independent filmmakers and producers by encouraging them to create films that question socially established norms and beliefs

-Encourage the development of new personalized cinematic approaches

-Use art and cinema to communicate across the largest audience possible, ultimately, transforming the art of film into a tool that reaches all communities and societies

If you would like to get involved with this edition of Good Pitch, please contact gp.arabi@beirutdc.org
