Black Public Media Forum to Allow Contestants to Vie for Up to $150K

Ten producing teams will have the chance to win up to $150,000 in project funding at the Black Public Media Forum, an interactive pitching competition, to be held Friday and Saturday before public television and commercial distributors.

Winners will be announced at the PitchBLACK Awards at 7 p.m. Friday at a virtual ceremony where documentary filmmaker Marco Williams will receive the BPM Trailblazer Award.

Created and presented by BPM, PitchBLACK serves as a major platform where television industry executives and funders can gather to identify rising Black talent and stories.

Past attendees include Third World Newsreel, Tribeca Film Institute, WNET/Thirteen and Women Make Movies, WORLD Channel and private investors.

Since January, the 360 Incubator+ fellows have benefited from an array of virtual workshops on pitching, grant writing, budgeting, licenses, distribution and more.

“The strength of BPM’s 360 Incubator+ is the collaborative effort of our mentors and workshop leaders combined with the amazing talent of our fellows,” said BPM Director of Program Initiatives Denise Greene. “Even in a virtual environment, there was a strong sense of community and a shared mission to elevate Black stories.”
