We are thrilled to announce that Canary in a Coal Mine has been selected as one of five finalists in the Paley DocPitch Competition.
What does this mean? On November 16th, we'll get a chance to pitch our film to a committee of executives from USA, A&E, MTV, History, PBS (POV), and an audience of professionals in film and television, gathered at The Paley Center for Media.
The winner receives $5,000 for their film as well as mentorship. While we are a long way from having a finished film to sell, it's a wonderful opportunity to bring the project before a group of filmmakers and industry experts, get early feedback, and build relationships.
So now for the big question: what should we mention in our pitch?
