Documentary makers in the Midwest have a great opportunity to get funding and raise awareness for their films through Good Pitch Chicago this October 22nd at Tribeca Flashpoint Media Arts Academy. The call for entries is now open via Channel 4 BritDoc's website. Submit before May 17, 4pm CDT! Good Pitch brings in-progress documentary projects in front of potential funders and outreach partners "to forge coalitions and campaigns that are good for all these partners, good for the films and good for society." Since 2008 the events have raised over $8,000,000 for almost 200 different documentaries. We at Kartemquin are excited to be bringing the event here for the first time, due to the work of our executive director Justine Nagan and the Good Pitch Chicago planning committee.
