OVERVIEW

Do you have an archive-driven documentary and would like the opportunity to collaborate with Getty Images and their archive partners to help achieve your vision?

Getty Images and AIDC are proud to present the Getty Images Archive Pitch, designed to elevate storytelling through archives by giving producers the opportunity to secure a partnership licensing agreement with reduced upfront licensing fees. Getty Images will come on board as a production partner with successful projects.

Successful candidates will have access to footage from Getty Images and their video and content partners, including BBC, BBC Earth, NBC, TVNZ, Bloomberg, ITN and more, in addition to research services to assist in finding the perfect clips.

Producers are invited to submit single, feature or factual series for consideration, with up to eight projects selected to pitch to Getty Images representatives during AIDC for the opportunity to work with Getty Images’ state-of-the-art archive services.

Getty Images has over 13 million footage clips online and countless more in the offline archives on every subject imaginable– from movements and protests that define humanity, to wildlife, climate change and much, much more. You can search by keywords, filming technique, viewpoints and composition, among other options.
