Joining us in Sheffield

This year's festival will be a hybrid event taking place 4-13 June, in Sheffield, in cinemas across the UK and online.

If you're joining us in Sheffield here's some useful information to help make your festival experience as safe and enjoyable as possible. 

COVID-19 Safety Information

We are working hard with our five venue partners and the local authority to ensure that you are safe at our events. To help us with this we ask that attendees follow the guidelines and procedures in place at each venue and respect instructions from staff and volunteers on site.

Venue capacities will be reduced and social distancing measures in place. Face coverings must be worn at all times indoors, unless exempt. All visitors must check in on arrival using the NHS Test & Trace QR code or provide their details to a member of staff, or they may be refused entry. 

Please do not attend any events if you are experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19, however mild, or if you are awaiting a test result, or have been asked to self-isolate.

Any in person screenings, exhibitions and talks in Sheffield are subject to change in line with the UK government’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) guidelines, which are continually being reviewed. 

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the festival will not be hosting any physical social events this year.
