Sunny Side of the Doc: GLOBAL PITCH 2022 submissions are open!

Date Posted: December 23, 2021

The Global Pitch by Sunny Side of the Doc will be held on Tuesday 22nd and Wednesday 23rd February. The aim of the two-day online pitching session sponsored by Al Jazeera Documentary Channel and Al Jazeera Balkans Documentary Film Festival (AJB DOC) is to facilitate the international financing and coproduction of projects focusing on Women’s Voices.

Sunny Side of the Doc welcomes important, compelling, topical, relevant and original stories with a female perspective. While the pitch wishes to champion women filmmakers, particularly from under-represented communities, the call for applications is open to all off screen talents.

The Global Pitch is a unique opportunity for 12 selected projects to reach out to 100+ key decision makers through online pitching and tailored individual meetings. The platform will also offer all applicants and participants networking and business opportunities.

The Global Pitch kicks off Sunny Side of the Doc 2022 and the year-long online activities which will focus on the Diversity of voices! Sunny Side of the Doc aims to bring to light projects, stories and talents from diverse geographical, social, racial, age and gender backgrounds. It wishes to embrace the diversity of narration of the documentary genre. It will take place in person in La Rochelle from 20th – 23rd June.

Submissions are open until Wednesday 5th January.
