We are delighted to welcome back Stacey Dooley to the festival in June. The presenter, author and investigative journalist, will appear at the Crucible Theatre for the headline BBC Interview, talking about life after Strictly Come Dancing and her next projects, including films exploring the arms trade and American vigilantism.
Says Nigel Fischer, Head of Talks & Sessions, Sheffield Doc/Fest, “We’re very excited to be welcoming Stacey Dooley back to Sheffield this year. We look forward to hearing her speak about her incredible career so far as a much-loved face of the BBC, and the global themes and the tough topics that her films tackle.”
Stacey’s television career began a decade ago when she brought to BBC3 insightful documentaries exploring domestic violence, drug abuse and child migration. Her first book, On the Front Line with the Women Who Fight Back (2018), draws on her encounters with the brave women featured in her films, and she continues to stare down some of the world’s toughest topics.
Already a household name due to the success of Stacey Dooley Investigates, Dooley has gained further recognition recently after winning BBC's Strictly Come Dancing and joining Grazia magazine as their new contributing editor for Investigations.
