Black Public Media has awarded $410,000 to five film projects presented during its biennial PitchBLACK Forum, a pitching competition attended by distributors and funders of both public and for-profit media. The grants represent the highest-ever total funding awarded to participants during PitchBLACK and a 28% increase over the $320,000 awarded in 2019. A judging panel of three television executives heard 10 pitches before selecting the grant winners, said BPM Executive Director Leslie Fields-Cruz. “Honestly, if I had my way and if I had a lot more money, all 10 of the projects would have received a certain amount of funding,” Fields-Cruz said.
