There was a decision made to really go local, because that's where the grassroots organising was happening and that's where the base was being built. Every community in the country could use a Good Pitch Local as injustice is everywhere.

Good Pitch Local not only connected me to innovative filmmakers and change agents, but it also provided me with a fresh perspective and appreciation for the power of film and media in creating long lasting change in our communities. I walked away with new partners, ideas and stories to share.

Good Pitch Local was amazing! There was a dynamic and electric synergy between pitchers and local organizations. I left feeling energized and ready to amplify stories that can have an impact in my hometown. If you believe that your community needs more powerful narratives, then Good Pitch local is the place to be!
