Good Pitch is coming to Aotearoa New Zealand

Conceptualised by Doc Society and Sundance Documentary Institute, Good Pitch brings together documentary filmmakers with foundations, NGOs, campaigners, philanthropists, policymakers, brands and media to mobilise social and environmental initiatives. This aims to forge coalitions and campaigns that are good for all these partners, good for the films and good for society.

Since 2007, Good Pitch has spread across the world. Over 10 years, more than USD30 million has been raised in philanthropic grants for the funding of social impact documentaries and their impact campaigns, forging priceless pro bono support, and 1,700 powerful strategic partnerships.

Comprising regional and local events, Good Pitch upskills filmmakers with important skills including impact producing and provides a platform to pitch and seek support for films’ impact campaigns.

Doc Edge has led the development of an alliance of Pacific nations committed to Good Pitch, facilitating great impactful stories from our filmmakers to travel around the world.

Applications to join Good Pitch Aotearoa New Zealand 2021 are now closed.

In October and November 2020, Good Pitch Aotearoa New Zealand presented The Future of Impact Producing, a series of three workshops (online) to introduce the main programme in 2021.

1. Meet Good Pitch
2. Listen to the Experts (Case Studies – 2040, The Girl on the Bridge)
