The Impact Producers Lab is a development of the global Good Pitch programme, which is a series of unique live events devised and organised by BRITDOC (now known as Doc Society) and hosted in different cities across North America and Europe. Good Pitch has established itself as a productive hub connecting documentary filmmakers with new kinds of partners from across civil society, offering new funding and distribution opportunities to reach larger European and international audiences.

Impact Producers Lab specifically trains Impact Producers to take film campaigns from strategy through to planning, budgeting, fundraising through to execution and evaluation, with the goal to create real, lasting social impact. This is not classroom teaching but highly interactive and participatory combining keynote presentations with discussions, teamwork and group analysis of case studies.

On Creative Europe funding, Nicole van Schaik, Director of Development at Doc Society, said:

"Creative Europe support has been instrumental to secure funding from other partners, including national film institutes, private foundations and philanthropists."
