SILVERDOCS 2010

23rd June 2010

On June 23rd 2010 we ran the Good Pitch @ Silverdocs.

More than 150 broadcasters, NGOs, foundations, philanthropists, online media and policy makers took part. The Good Pitch goes from strength to strength as more influential and diverse circles hear about the event and begin to take part bringing their knowledge and resources to the table.

You can see the 8 amazing projects pitched, their trailers and see profiles of many of the participants who attended on our Good Film site - goodfilm.org/goodpitch.

Highlights included Victor Buhler raising $50,000 to shoot this summer for A Whole Lott More, Ameena Matthews - contributor to Steve James's film the Interrupters - speaking so eloquently about the work she does preventing violent recriminations in Chicago, the countless pledges of support from organizations and activists, the Dear Mandela team being told to expect 'very good news' at a grant cycle announcement next week, being addressed by Bishop Gene Robinson, the first openly gay priest to be ordained a bishop in a major Christian denomination - and the subject of The Truth Will Set you Free. What a day!
