Good Pitch USA returns to New York October 22 at the Times Center to spearhead social change through the power of storytelling and profile six remarkable documentary films which capture the state of the nation.

Six new feature documentaries from eight directors Zeshawn Ali, Dara Kell, Loira Limbal, Grace Lee & Marjan Safinia, Ben Kalina & Jen Schneider, and Sam Feder address income inequality, an intersectional approach to conquering poverty, the rise of women of color as a transformative force in politics, the complex challenges of addressing climate change with technology and more.

This years national US program kicks off with a three-day impact lab six months out, followed by months of intensive outreach for each project, then a second pitch training workshop just prior to the live event, a comprehensive approach to building smart and powerful campaigns for change.
