Sunny Side of the Doc is currently seeking projects in advanced development with the financial commitment of at least one partner to participate in the 4th edition of Global Pitch for Global Change. 

The aim of these two days of online pitching is to facilitate international coproductions and financing of projects dealing with global issues.

The best project, selected by a jury of documentary experts, will receive €3,000 from the Global Pitch sponsor(s) and two accreditations for Sunny Side of the Doc, which takes place from 24 to 27 June 2024 in La Rochelle. Other special prizes and invitations to festivals may also be awarded by their professional partners. 

Participants will also have the opportunity to attend keynote presentations by industry experts, meet with a wide range of qualified professionals to forge partnerships, and find financing or new co-production opportunities.

DOCS FOR THE FUTURE: Mapping a Sustainable World 

The world is facing major challenges: migrations, famine, health, education, gender equality, climate change, rising nationalism, etc. To achieve a better and more sustainable future for all, the United Nations has identified 17 sustainable development goals that go far beyond climate issues alone. 

Sunny Side’s Global Pitch aims to continue mobilizing the documentary community around the major issues of our time, so that it can help to be a vector for change. Global Pitch 2024 is therefore intended to be about commitment and mobilization as well as analysis. It is the first part of the 2024 focus, which will look at Mapping the Future of our ecosystem and the documentary genre itself during the 35th edition in La Rochelle.
