Good Pitch Europe will be back in Oslo
- The call for entries for Good Pitch Europe 2015 is now open; the deadline is 31 October, 4pm GMT
Good Pitch Europe 2015 will be held on 25 March in Oslo, Norway, and BRITDOC is calling out to European filmmakers working on social and environmental justice film projects to apply.
Good Pitch brings together documentary filmmakers with foundations, NGOs, campaigners, philanthropists, policymakers, brands and media around leading social and environmental issues – to forge coalitions and campaigns that are good for all these partners, good for films and good for society. A group of European filmmaking teams will pitch their documentary projects and associated impact campaigns with the aim of creating a unique coalition around each film to accelerate its impact and influence.
Applicants need to have projects that both corporate and non-profit partners can collaborate on: films that tell great stories that, directly or indirectly, raise important contemporary global and national topics and enhance our understanding of our world. Outreach or audience engagement plans for the feature-length films are a pre-requisite. Impact campaigns can take any form, with any ultimate goal. Projects can be at any stage from early production to completion, and even early festival circuit (although rough-cut stage is ideal). Applicants will need to upload a trailer or sample reel and a two-minute video of themselves explaining why they want to make the film and the change they think it can effect.
Prior to the pitch day itself, the teams selected will follow a two-part workshop – the Impact Producers Lab, which will be held in Finland from 7-11 January 2015 inclusive, and the Campaign Development Workshop from 21-25 March 2015 inclusive in Oslo, Norway – as well as pre-strategic meetings.
There is no fee for applying or for taking part. The deadline for applications is 31 October, 4pm GMT. For further information, go to the Good Pitch website or contact BRITDOC’s outreach director, Nicole van Schaik, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
