Our jobs are like our festival, open to all.
We believe that documentaries, and those working in the arts and in media – including ourselves - have a part to play in creating a society which is proud of its diversity and its multi-cultural heritage.
Our programme-centred approach to inclusiveness puts diversity at the forefront of its activity. Through the documentaries we showcase and the talent we develop, we aim to celebrate diversity, promote equality and challenge discrimination.
Equally, we are committed to providing a welcoming, accessible, inclusive and positive experience for all festival attendees, team members and volunteers – regardless of age, disability, sex, gender, sexuality, marital/civil partnership status, pregnancy/maternity/paternity, race, religion/belief, or socio-economic background. We’re proud to be a Disability Confident committed employer, supporting disabled people in the workplace. Sheffield DocFest is BFI Diversity standards approved, an organisation that encourages equality of opportunity and addresses under-representation in the screen industries.
