News - Call for Entries for The Good Pitch Europe
LONDON - The Good Pitch Europe 2012 is coming to London in June. Call for Entries now open until Wednesday 1st February, 4pm UK time
The Good Pitch Europe will be held on June 25th and the Channel 4 BRITDOC Foundation is calling out to European filmmakers working on social and environmental justice film projects to apply.
The Good Pitch is a live event bringing together specially selected foundations, NGOs, social entrepreneurs, broadcasters, brands and media to expand the resources aimed at maximising the impact of social-issue documentary.
A group of European filmmaking teams will pitch their project and its associated outreach campaign with the aim of creating a unique coalition around each film to accelerate its impact and influence.
We are looking to find projects from European filmmakers that both corporate and non-profit partners can collaborate on; films which tell great stories that, directly or indirectly, raise important contemporary global and national subjects and enhance our understanding of the world.
You can only apply for Good Pitch if you have outreach or audience engagement plans for your film. Your outreach campaign can take any form, with any ultimate goal – it could seek to effect behavioural change, policy change and/or engage with the issues raised in new and interesting ways.
We look for projects at any stage from early production to completion; rough cut stage is ideal. The call is open to projects looking for completion funding, outreach funding, campaigning networks or a combination of these.
Filmmakers will need to upload a trailer and 2-minute video of themselves telling us why you want to make this film and what want it to achieve.
If selected, film pitch teams must be available to be in London from March 9th-11th for part 1 of the mandatory Campaign Development Workshop and then from June 22nd-26th inclusive for part 2 of the workshop, the pitch day itself as well as follow-up meetings. There is no fee for applying or for taking part. This all could result in completion funds, marketing partners and television sales.
