The Tribeca Film Institute has announced The Good Pitch, a one day event on April 27, during the Tribeca Film Festival, in which filmmakers with social interest docs can pitch their projects to non-profit partners in order to establish partnerships that will benefit the films and the causes they hope to promote. In a prepared statement, Beth Janson, the Artistic Director of the Tribeca Film Institute said, "The Good Pitch is a unique catalyst which harnesses new and creative energies with the goal of getting films made and seen. This economic climate calls for unconventional thinking, especially in the cultural realm, and hosting The Good Pitch is one way TFI is supporting documentary filmmakers who are thinking outside the box."
The Good Pitch is a project of the UK's Channel 4 BRITDOC Foundation, in partnership with the Sundance Institute Documentary Film Program. It is supported by The Fledgling Fund, Chicken and Egg Pictures Tides Foundation, the Hartley Film Foundation and anonymous donors, with campaign development for filmmakers provided by Working Films.
Submissions are now open on the BRITDOC website here.
