The Decision Makers coming to Sheffield Doc/Fest 2017 are from all areas of the industry. The list includes commissioners, buyers, funders, executives, advisors, mentors, strategists, distributors, and sales agents from across the world. Many of them commission cross-platform/interactive as well as documentary.
Most Decision Makers are available for meetings with those selected for our flagship pitching opportunity MeetMarket. Decision Makers attend various other events at the festival as well, including Round Table Session and 10-Minute Meets Sessions, and some of our public pitch competitions.
There are many other sessions in the Talks & Sessions programme which Decision Makers appear, and Sheffield Doc/Fest is renowned for being a unique market for enabling delegates to connect informally with the funders and supporters you want to connect with. Your delegate pass gives you access to the Marketplace, as well as all other festival venues (all within an approximate 10 minute walk), where you can easily meet Decision Makers. If you'd like any advice on how to navigate the festival and market, and meet the people you need to meet, please email the marketplace team
