Broken Flower won at the Global Pitch 2022
Sunny Side of the Doc, the International Community and Marketplace for Documentary and Digital Storytelling, announces the winner for the second and online edition of Global Pitch (February 22nd – 23rd).

The Global Pitch – Women’s Voices just kicked off Sunny Side of the Doc's 2022 year whose main thread is New Voices. Plurality of voices and talents is essential to ensure that films are relevant to diverse audiences. Strongly convinced that diversity drives innovation and creativity in the documentary genre, Sunny Side of the Doc is setting up new features to be deployed at the 33rd edition in June to embrace and nurture new talents, and help them find their place in the documentary community.

Sponsored this year by Al Jazeera Documentary Channel / Al Jazeera Balkans Documentary Film Festival (AJB DOC) and PBS International, the online pitching event aims to facilitate the international financing and coproduction of projects focusing on Women's Voices in front and behind the camera.

Over two days, a selection of 12 projects among the 180 from 40+ countries submitted, were presented to a panel of high-level decision-makers in pre-recorded video pitches, followed by a live Q&A session.

One project particularly caught the attention of a prestigious jury gathering influential representatives of the documentary and audiovisual sector: Lucila Moctezuma, Program Director at Chicken & Egg Pictures (United States), Mehdi Bekkar, Sr. Producer - In House Production | Production Department, at Al Jazeera Media Network (Qatar) and Gugi Gumilang, Executive Director at In-Docs (Indonesia).
