We would like to congratulate Girl With Child for winning this year's "The Pitch" at Industry Days, co-produced with the Chicago International Film Festival. Five diverse and incredibly strong projects presented a 7-minute pitch during Sunday's live competition. This year's judges were Amy Hobby, Vice President of Artist Programs at Tribeca Film Institute, Aijah Keith, Acquisitions Manager of IFC Films and Sundance Selects, and Brian Hieggelke, Editor & Publisher of Newcity. The event demonstrated the breadth of talented filmmakers here in Chicago, and the judges faced a very difficult decision in choosing a winner. We are proud of all five teams that pitched and are looking forward to following their progress.
