Good Pitch Chicago is an event that brings together documentary filmmakers with foundations, NGOs, philanthropists, policy makers, brands and media around leading social issues to forge coalitions that are good for all these partners, good for the films, and good for society.
On May 5, 2015 six film teams took the stage at historic Thalia Hall to pitch their work to a roundtable of leading social justice advocates from around the country, surrounded by supporters, funders, and community members. The event raised over $150,000 for the films in the room, all of which have premiered to great success and major impact.
Good Pitch is a BRITDOC project in partnership with Ford Foundation and the Sundance Institute Documentary Film Program. Good Pitch Chicago is co-produced by Chicago Media Project, and supported by the John D. & Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the Irving R.
