Good Pitch Local
North Carolina

With a new resolve to bridge divides and make new alliances that are both bi-partisan and inter-faith, the Good Pitch programme is going LOCAL - working at the state, county, town and city level of engagement. We want to find and support local voices in North Carolina by connecting filmmakers with local funders, local organizers, local lawyers, local educators, local policy makers and local media to shape innovative media that can galvanize their communities.

Hosted by Southern Documentary Fund

A trusted partner for veteran, emerging, and first-time documentary producers across the region, helping them direct their lenses and microphones at powerful Southern stories and critical issues.

“Good Pitch Local comes to North Carolina at a pivotal time. From Moral Mondays to activists taking on legacies of the racist Confederacy, while facing racially gerrymandered districts and a coup from the NC state legislature, it's all happening here. Our state is buzzing. Who will tell the stories behind the soundbites? How do we build collaborations needed to capture the nuance and complexity of our times? Southern Documentary Fund is excited to bring this unique model to this state in this moment, connecting skilled storytellers with the people and organizations behind the headlines.”

Naomi Walker Executive Director, Southern Documentary Fund
