    CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — Good Pitch is a one-day event intended to help filmmakers accelerate the financing and completion of their social issue films, find interested broadcasters and distributors willing to take their films to the public, and connect with nonprofit organizations that might find useful and strategic ways of utilizing the film for advocacy and educational purposes. Good Pitch Chicago will be the first Good Pitch event to take place in the Midwest and will give preference to Midwest-based filmmakers and films of particular relevance to the Midwest.

The MacArthur Foundation awarded Good Pitch Chicago $50,000 between 2003 and 2014.
