To mark 20 years of Doc/Fest all stops have been pulled out to bring the most incredible conference programme for 2013. Presented for the third time with Documentary Campus, the schedule includes over 80 events including some huge names in conversation at The Crucible Theatre. Michael Palin will be interviewed by Miranda Sawyer, Adam Buxton does a best of BUG live show , Sue Perkins interviews Janice Hadlow , Jay Hunt talks for Channel 4, James Rhodes performs live on piano, filmmakers give a behind the scenes look at Wiggins: A year in Yellow and stars from Who Do You Think You Are? Talk of their experience on the show. Many, many more amazing interviews to be announced.
If that wasn’t exciting enough we carry on the Doc/Fest tradition for embracing and creating live soundtrack performances to accompany archive screenings with the incredibly popular, Televisual award nominated From The Sea to the Land Beyond performance, with British Seapower returning after the sellout 2012 show and after being shown on BBCFOUR and having it’s BFI DVD release. We also invite British family folk outfit The Unthanks to showcase their live soundtrack event: Songs From The Shipyards.
When it’s time to get back to business we will, as always, have an essential programme of industry sessions where commissioners from the UK and Europe’s major channels give exclusive information to delegates on what they are looking for right now. We’ll host heated debates tackling ethical, access and partnership issues. We’ll showcase Science and academic experts, we’ll discuss funding, pitching, distribution, international markets, film crew, interview techniques, poverty, programming and a whole lot more in our jam-packed program, whoever you are, you will find something you can’t miss.
We are extremely proud of our diverse, varied and International conference programme this year and the only way to see all of these and more is to buy a Full Festival Pass.
