Event - Good Pitch Europe 2013 (London)
Good Pitch Europe 2013 returns to the Royal Institution of Great Britain in London on Friday 7th June.
Good Pitch is an invitation-‐only event where, after months of careful preparation and strategising, 6 filmmaking teams pitch their feature documentary and its associated audience engagement campaign in front of a live audience of funders and changemakers. Good Pitch brings together independent documentary films and organisations with innovation and social change at their heart.
The international line up of filmmakers, who will be travelling from Norway, Israel, Palestine, Belgium, USA, Austria, Germany and Romania to participate in the event includes Johan Grimonprez (The Shadow World), Amber Fares (Speed Sisters), Augusto Baugstø Hanssen (Ida’s Diary), Michaela Kirst, Ebba Sinzinger & Monica Lazurean-‐Gorgan (Green, Green, Green), Elisa Paloschi (Driving with Selvi) and Orlando von Einsiedel (Untitled Gorilla Project)
The projects will be pitched to an invited group of leading European foundations, NGOs, policymakers, brands, advertising and digital agencies, social entrepreneurs and media organisations with the aim of creating unique coalitions around each film to accelerate its social and political impact.
A project of the BRITDOC Foundation in partnership with the Sundance Institute Documentary Film Program, the team worked with staff and advisors to choose the films for this edition of Good Pitch.
The six selected projects feature stories from across the globe. These documentaries take a close look at the international arms trade, mental health and self-‐harm, women's empowerment in India, international trade and legal frameworks, and the first all-‐women motor racing team in the Middle East.
Good Pitch Europe 2013 is the second Good Pitch of 2013, with the first event taking place at the Ford Foundation in New York on April 30th. For more information on Good Pitch events in 2013, see www.goodpitch.org.
