We are incredibly excited to announce that Intuition has been selected for the prestigious Good Pitch² Southeast Asia.
After undergoing a tough selection process with more than 100 applications from the region, five powerful documentary films were selected.
Created by BRITDOC in 2008, Good Pitch has now assisted more than 85 social issue documentaries around the globe by connecting them to funders, policy makers, institutions, educators, brands, media, and any strategic stakeholders that are committed to social justice. The program has channeled more than 21 million Euro to enable great documentaries make a lasting impact locally and internationally.
For the first time ever, In-Docs is hosting the Good Pitch² Southeast Asia, a Good Pitch satellite program in Southeast Asia. As the leading non-profit documentary organization in Indonesia, In-Docs, with the support of Ford Foundation and Jia Foundation, will connect selected films to local and international institutions and individuals that can widen the audience, support with funding, and use the films to fuel social justice campaign.
Congratulations to our fellow filmmakers who’ve also been selected. The five projects pitching in May 2017 are:
- Ivy Rose Universe Baldoza (The Philippines) – Audio Perpertua
- Kurnia Yudha (Indonesia) – Planting is Resistance
- Shalahuddin Siregar (Indonesia) – Song For My Children
- Baby Ruth Villarama (The Philippines) – Sunday Beauty Queen
- Yong Shu Ling (Singapore) – Intuition
Lisa and I are excited to be heading to Jakarta this December for an impact workshop, where we will receive mentorship in storytelling and in creating an impact strategy for our films.
In May 2017, the films will be presented to the Good Pitch² Southeast Asia live event, with an invited audience of 200 change-makers from Southeast Asia, that are considering an involvement with the films.
Keep an eye out for more updates as we journey through this adventure!
