The Good Pitch UK is a one-day live event bringing together films and organizations with social change and innovation at their heart. An invited group of foundations, NGOs, brands, advertising and digital agencies, social entrepreneurs and media organizations will hear pitches from eight filmmaking teams who want to work collaboratively with other sectors to effect change. The 8 films being pitched on 10 September cover issues as diverse as homelessness, the anti-war movement and how to empower an ageing population.
The Good Pitch is a partnership between The Channel 4 BRITDOC Foundation and the Sundance Institute Documentary Film Program, in collaboration with Working Films UK. The event is made possible by our generous supporters: Edelman, PUMA.Creative, Working Films, The Co-operative, The Wellcome Trust and Amnesty International. For more information on Good Pitch events in 2010 in Europe and North America, see www.britdoc.org/goodpitch.
The projects for this edition of the Good Pitch were chosen by the Channel 4 BRITDOC Foundation and the Sundance Institute Documentary Film Program. The selected filmmakers are Penny Woolcock (On the Streets), David Sington (The Flaw), Jennifer Arnold (A Small Act), Hugh Hartford (Ping Pong), Elinyisia Mosha (Anatomy of Poverty), Rachel Seifert (Not on the Label), Heather Leach (Dancing With Hugo Boss) and Amir Amirani (We are Many).
“Now in its second year, the Good Pitch is emerging as a model to connect independent documentary filmmakers with other leading social change agents,” says Cara Mertes, Director of the Sundance Documentary Film Program. “Our second year will evolve the model by bringing in new stakeholders, while continuing to champion the importance of highly crafted films in creating awareness and impact.”
