Call for submission - Good Pitch Europe 2017

CALL FOR SUBMISSION. Good Pitch Europe connects the world’s best social justice films with new partners and is now looking for ambitious documentary projects that will be the catalyst for social, political or environmental change. Deadline is 15th September 2016. Apply now:


We are delighted to announce the next edition of Good Pitch Europe, which will be hosted in Copenhagen in March 2017 in collaboration with CPH:DOX Film Festival. Two call for entry are open and we're looking for 7 filmmaking teams and 8 European Impact Producers to take through the programme of labs and mentorship as well as the live Good Pitch event.

1) A call out to European filmmakers working on social and environmental justice film projects.
Deadline 15th September 2016.

Good Pitch is looking for films which tackle a national or global issue, with something important to show us about the world or ourselves. Films of any style are welcomed - personal, observational, essays, presenter-led, verité. Projects can be at any stage from early production to completion and even early festival circuit (although rough cut stage is ideal), and they should be 60+ minutes in length (although we welcome plans to make shorter versions).

Filmmakers applying for Good Pitch should already have outreach or audience engagement ambitions for their film. Impact campaigns 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.

Apply here:
Successful applicants will be informed by 30th September 2016.

The experience has been instrumental in creating our impact campaign around the film.”
Sami Jahnukainen, Producer of Post-Punk Disorder (Good Pitch Alumni 2015)

2) A call out for European Impact Producers to join the Impact Producer Lab.
Deadline 15th September 2016. 

Films have producers to manage the creative and financial process from script to screen. But where a filmmaker aspires to create positive social or environmental impact with their project, they may now need a specialised ‘impact producer’ to take their film from completion to impact.
At BRITDOC we are helping to train up this new generation of Impact Producers. We are looking to select eight individuals from across Europe who are either doing this work, or ready to step into this role. The eight professionals will attend the Impact Producers Lab in Finland, which will run from the 27-30th October 2016 under our Good Pitch programme. 

Apply here:
Successful applicants will be informed by 30th September 2016.
BRITDOC bring a rare combination of expertise, positive energy and a nurturing, enabling attitude to the field of documentary distribution and impact. The Impact Producers Lab couldn't be more necessary for a field that is dangerously moving into formatted, commercially friendly reality television style big screen content.
Elhum Shakerifar, Producer & Impact producer at Postcode Films

This edition of Good Pitch Europe marks the climax of a three year programme of investment and commitment to the filmmaker and changemaker community across the Nordic region, after which Good Pitch will be traveling on to other parts of Europe. 

Over the next 10 months, we will be working closely with our great colleagues at the the Danish Film Institute, Swedish Film Institute, Finnish Film Foundation, the Norwegian Film Institute, CPH:DOX, Nordisk Panorama, DocPoint and IDFA amongst others - to identify the best filmmakers and impact producers to take part in this year's programme.

I believe that for every documentary filmmaker Good Pitch has quickly become like the parmesan on the pasta: simply indispensable.”
Antonio Russo Merenda, Swedish Film Institute

For three years now this programme has been made possible by the incredible support of Creative Europe, the Culture Foundation of the Swedish Postcode Lottery, Kone Foundation, Fritt Ord Foundation, Democracy & Media Foundation, Nordisk Film & TV Fund, Finnish Film Foundation, Norwegian Film Institute, Swedish Film Institute and AVEK Foundation.
