Good Pitch Local Texas 2020

27 & 28 October 2020

Covid-19 Update

Good Pitch Local Texas 2020 presented by EarthxFilm and Doc Society features 11 new media projects that address the environment issues and center climate justice. Organizers had planned to present the event in person at EarthX festival in April 2020, and have re-imagined the program as a space to seed creative connection and collaboration and support for storytellers and organizers leading change in Texas and beyond in an online environment.

This curated program highlights and supports short-form non-fiction media projects and powerful stories from community leaders addressing climate justice in Texas. It culminates in a day-long event that is a model for radical collaboration, offering cross-sector support for the featured projects.

Good Pitch Local is a space for community, collaboration and creative change. Together, we will raise up stories that matter in the fight for climate justice in Texas, and beyond, by the artists and organizers on the front lines of social change.

How does it work?

We invite both media makers looking for partnership and support, and leaders who are at the heart of stories that need to be told to submit projects for consideration. We carefully curate the line-up, and then help the teams prepare their project pitches.

Who attends Good Pitch Local?

Local Activists, Educators, Filmmakers, Foundations, Nonprofits, Lawyers, Media makers, Media Platforms, Philanthropists, Policymakers, Press and more.

Good to know:
Good Pitch Local is an invitation-only event that will take place online with a webcast based in Dallas. Please write to GoodPitchLocal@DocSociety.org to request an invitation.

Dallas, TX

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.

Cara Mertes, Just Film, Ford Foundation

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.

Daniel Gibson, Allegany Franciscan Ministries

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!
