After a successful pitch at the Sydney Opera House to a 300 strong crowd of philanthropists, not-for-profit agencies, and other pressure groups, Frackman has been the proud recipient of a significant funding pledge.
Good Pitch is the international documentary forum devised by BRITDOC and Sundance Institute Documentary Film Program. Good Pitch Australia is an initiative of Shark Island Institute and Documentary Australia Foundation.
Frackman has been one of seven films chosen, which collectively received more than $2 million in funding. This support makes a huge difference for Frackman, an independent film made possible by a large grassroots support network.
Beadie Finzi, director of Good Pitch, said of the program: ‘Australia has got all the ingredients for a great Good Pitch… a tremendous hub of creative documentary filmmakers and a community bristling with independence and determination to get films made and seen nationally and internationally.’
