Civil Society Pitch is a unique development workshop dedicated to the documentary filmmaking industry in Romania and neighboring countries: Hungary, Bulgaria and Republic of Moldova.

We live in the same region, we face the same dilemmas, we write and talk about the same challenges, but sometimes we simply forget to communicate directly. Civil Society Pitch is all about bringing at the same table filmmakers (documentary directors or producers) and human rights activists/organizations. Some call all this process facilitation, others matchmaking. Regardless of how we choose to call it, we’re preoccupied by one and only thing: we encourage the production of high quality documentaries in the region. Civil Society Pitch offers the perfect environment: foreign tutors with a vast experience in the field, a compact three days’ workshop, 6 months mentoring sessions for developing film ideas and a 4000 EUR award for the best documentary project.
