OVERVIEW

Do you have an archive-driven documentary or factual project in the works? The Getty Images Archive Pitch is back for a second year, giving distributors and production companies the opportunity to pitch and partner with Getty Images to produce long-form, archive-rich productions across any genre with international appeal.

The Archive Pitch is designed to elevate storytelling through Getty Images archival content.

Distributors and producers are given the opportunity to secure a partnership licensing agreement. The successful projects will have access to Getty Images’ insight and research expertise and full access to content from Getty Images and their video content partners, including BBC, BBC Earth, NBC, TVNZ, Bloomberg, ITN and more.

Distributors and producers are invited to submit single, feature or factual series for consideration. The selected projects will have the chance 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 17 million footage clips online and decades of offline archives on every subject imaginable – from the moments that have shaped history, to sustainability and the climate crisis, wildlife, and much, much more.
