Talk shop over coffee with WIFTV members and friends. Whether you are a producer, directors, screenwriters, actors, or someone who wants to know more about the industry, the William F. White Networking Coffee is a great way to meet a variety of different people in the film and television community in Vancouver.
This month's guest speaker is Sue Biely, Executive Producer of Good Pitch Vancouver. Sue will discuss this new national program, Good Pitch, which started in the UK and is now spreading globally. This is the first time Good Pitch is being brought to Canada as a full program and event.
The big idea behind Good Pitch is:
Good Pitch brings together documentary filmmakers with foundations, NGOs, campaigners, philanthropists, policymakers, brands and media around leading social and environmental issues - to forge coalitions and campaigns that are good for all these partners, good for the films and good for society.
Good Pitch Vancouver is focusing on Impact Campaigns and coalitions for each film so once complete, the film will reach into civil society to help make positive change for the issue it addresses. This is not a program to support production financing in Canada.
