Director of Good Pitch UK and BRITDOC Foundation, Beadie Finzie, along with multi-award-winning Director Lee Hirsch, will be ‘In Conversation’ with Ian Darling at the Sydney launch of Good Pitch² Australia on Tuesday 27th of May.

Following the event will be a free screening of Hirsch’s film Bully, a documentary at the heart of ‘The BULLY Project’, a social action campaign that is transforming kid’ lives and changing a culture of bullying into one of empathy and action across America.

Good Pitch² Australia will be held at the Sydney Opera House on October, 2014.

A concept devised by BRITDOC and SUNDANCE INSTITUTE with the support of the Ford Foundation. Good Pitch² Australia will be hosted by Shark Island Institute and Documentary Australia Foundation, together with Community Partners, Philanthropy Australia and Pro Bono Australia.

“GOOD PITCH is the most rewarding and high impact philanthropic event I have ever experienced, demonstrating the power of philanthropy when it works collaboratively alongside outstanding story-tellers and change agents. Having attended Good Pitch events in New York and London, I’m so excited that we are bringing the event to Australia in October this year!”

– Ian Darling, Shark Island Institute and The Caledonia Foundation.

Registration and RSVP required as places are limited.
