New York 2013

30th April 2013

This year we returned to the Ford Foundation with projects tackling the Bolivian cocaine industry, poverty and women's economic emancipation in Latin America, immigrant workers' rights in NYC, the increasing wage gap, Senegal's 'African Spring', war crimes in Sri Lanka, and the pro-life debate in rural South Dakota.

A hugely dynamic day, this event raised production and outreach funding for several of the projects, resulted in not one but two standing ovations, and bade farewell to Orlando Bagwell for whom this was his final Good Pitch as head of Ford Foundation's JustFilms initiative.
