All our projects relate to one or more of our five strategic areas

Good Pitch

Good Pitch brings together documentary filmmakers with foundations, NGOs, campaigners, philanthropists, policymakers, brands and media around leading social and environmental issues — to forge coalitions and campaigns that are good for all these partners, good for the films and good for society.

"Love Good Pitch – it has created a community of like minded changemakers who believe in the power of using stories to drive social justice throughout the world."
Rashid Shabazz, Open Society Foundations
"It's been of critical, indispensible help. Can't thank you enough. Around here we now call it: Great Pitch"
Amy Ziering, Producer, The Invisible War

134 film projects from 60 countries have been presented at Good Pitch events around the world.

$17,000,000 raised in new funding for films and campaigns

Doc Impact Award

The Doc Impact Award is the first prize to celebrate the power of film as a driver of change; the first which compels filmmakers to capture and articulate evidence of impact. Our aim: to help build new fans for the films and create new partners for the campaign.

"Finally an award that acknowledges the unique role that documentary plays in society"
Morgan Spurlock
"Be under no illusion: the tenacity, commitment and perseverance of the compassionate few can change the world"
Susan Sarandon

Impact Field Guide

Launched in 2014, the Impact Field Guide & Toolkit is a free online resource designed to help anyone working with film make an even greater impact.

We are glad to call them partners, collaborators and co-conspirators in promoting the great art of non-fiction film"

Doc Academy

Doc Society believes that documentary film is one of the most effective tools in creating empathy and inspiring people to engage as active citizens at a local, national and international level. To change the way we see the world.

In 2012-13 we piloted the project in 18 schools. Since then we have taken it UK-wide.
