Call for Good Pitch Submissions

The People to People (P2P) International Documentary Conference supported by The Britdoc Foundation brings you the inaugural “Good Pitch X” a funding and networking forum like no other.

What is the Good Pitch?
An initiative of the Britdoc Foundation, The Good Pitch was first held in Oxford in 2008 and continues to build international momentum. The event is inspired by a belief that films are the best medium for bringing stories and issues to the widest possible audiences and inspire people to act.
The Good Pitch is a re-imagined pitching forum, which sees broadcasters and traditional film funders joined by foundations, charities and non-governmental organisations. Selected documentary projects are invited to “sit at the table” with participating organisations in order to develop relationships that are good for filmmakers and grant makers, good for films and good for society.

P2P Good Pitch X 2011 JHB SA

The event will match major grant makers working for social justice in the Southern African region with selected regional documentary projects that directly or indirectly promote their aims.
