Call for Filmmakers- Good Pitch USA 2019

Doc Society is excited to announce the return of the national edition of Good Pitch to NYC in 2019!

What are we looking for? We are looking for six ambitious feature documentaries that tackle a national or global issue, stories that reveal something important about our world, and ourselves. Films of any style are welcomed - personal, observational, essays, presenter-led, or verité. Projects can be at any stage, while rough cut is ideal, early production to completion and even films scheduled for festival premiere are acceptable. They should be 60+ minutes in length (we welcome plans for shorter versions and accompanying interactive projects).  Good Pitch filmmakers think beyond traditional funding and distribution models. They have creative ideas to reach audiences that matter. They are excited about the prospect of designing and partnering on impact campaigns that could change hearts and minds, affect policy and help build community.

The application deadline is Thursday, February 21 at 5pm EST.
