Over the past four years Sheffield Doc/Fest has massively expanded its marketplace activity, as well as its cross platform, interactive and digital programme. These developments and the stunning film programme and often controversial conference sessions are what attract over 2,600 delegates from around the globe and thousands of general public.
"It’s just perfectly curated. The films are all brilliant. And you come out just feeling so much better about yourself and the world"
Sheffield Doc/Fest is famous for its fabulous parties and endless networking opportunities. The Festival programme includes 120 films from dozens of countries, 300 speakers from the digital and docs sector and over 250 buyers and decision makers from 20 countries participate in the marketplace. Millions of pounds of deals are done during the festival.
In partnership with Documentary Campus, we co-present the industry conference sessions. Working together, we help the documentary industry thrive by joining forces to stage a fantastic session programme to keep the industry informed and up-to-date with the most pressing developments.
Along with our partner Crossover we also deliver some of the most innovative and internationally acclaimed training initiatives for the film, TV and digital sector throughout the year. Crossover Labs have been presented in many countries around the world. Visit Crossover Summit for more information.
