Good Pitch Chicago brings together Midwestern filmmakers with nonprofits, foundations, philanthropists, brands and media around leading social issues—to forge coalitions and campaigns that are good for all these partners, good for the films and good for society.
Born out of the conviction that documentary is a powerful tool for creating social change, Good Pitch Chicago offers a unique opportunity to create a coalition around unique film projects, providing potential to network and build partnerships around creative funding strategies, cause marketing, policy change, issue advocacy, and public engagement.
Good Pitch is an international pitching forum where some of the world's best veteran, and most exciting emerging, documentary filmmakers come to pitch their film for potential outreach partners, media/broadcast organizations and funders.
