Win More Grants. Make a Bigger Difference.


In collaboration with Doc Society

For emerging and established nonfiction media makers, navigating the world of grantmaking is key to getting their work off the ground.

Join several of the leading documentary film nonprofits (some which are funders), and all of which happen to have folks right here in New York City - for a primer on current opportunities, and how the landscape is shifting.

Doc Society is a nonprofit based in New York and London committed to enabling great documentary films and connecting them to audiences globally. Its flagship event, Good Pitch, is an innovative forum for social justice documentaries connecting them with funders and diverse partners that can advance the impact of their work.


  • Learn the essential starting points for getting a documentary funded.
  • Learn more about how to network effectively in the field of filmmaking.
