Sunny Side of the Doc announces the Global Pitch  2024 Call for Projects
Sunny Side of the Doc announces today the opening of the call for projects for the 4th edition of Global Pitch
The objective of this online event, Global Pitch for Global Change, is to bring together the international documentary film community around engaged themes.
The world is facing major challenges: migrations, famine, health, education, gender equality, climate change, rising nationalism, etc. Today, only 15 percent of the United Nations 17 sustainable development goals are on track.

Documentary professionals have the ambition to open minds, to decipher, to educate, to raise awareness about the major issues facing the world and to be an actor of change. However, it has to be said that the world is changing more slowly than we would like, and too slowly to ensure its own survival!

After focusing on Women's Voices in 2022 and on Climate Change last year, Sunny Side's Global Pitch aims to  continue mobilizing the documentary community around the major issues of our time, so that it can help to be a vector for change. Global Pitch 2024 is therefore intended to be about commitment and mobilization as well as analysis. It is the first part of our 2024 focus, which will look at Mapping the Future of our ecosystem and the documentary genre itself during our 35th edition in La Rochelle.

The Global Pitch is looking for stories that are important, powerful, original, committed and engaging, inspiring, moving, analytical, investigative, solution-oriented and dealing with issues and challenges linked to the 17 sustainable development goals in order to map what the world of tomorrow could and should be.

All talent can submit their projects - in any format - by November 24, 2023, as long as it is in the development phase with the financial commitment of at least one partner. The submitted projects will be studied by a selection committee that will evaluate them. The pitching sessions will give all participants a global vision of the market, privileged access to qualified and diversified professionals, keynotes creating unique opportunities for exchanges and meetings.
