Good Pitch Local is coming to Philadelphia. A day-long networking event showcasing short-form non-fiction media projects that are deeply relevant to Philadelphia and Pennsylvania. An opportunity for organizers to connect with media makers within their communities in a model of radical creative collaboration.

Who attends Good Pitch Local?

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

How does it work?

We invite ideas to be pitched not just by creatives or journalists looking for partners but also by community organisers & educators who are at the heart of stories that need telling. Over the day up to 20 three minute presentations will be heard and the whole room will discuss how they can help.

Sharing access to resources that support creation, distribution and outreach for the media projects. Offering financial resource often in the form of micro-grants of $500 - $1,000. Suggesting partnerships that can strengthen campaigns and movements. Donating time and expertise to one another.

Together we can raise up the stories that matter in Philadelphia by the artists and organisers who know best. Good Pitch Local is an invitation event that is free to all participants. The day includes light refreshments and complimentary networking lunch.

Thank you to all our partners and supporters who have made this Good Pitch Local event possible

Request Invitation

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.

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.

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!
