Northern Focus

Blooming from cities that, in some ways, were left to be forgotten as forlorn relics of industry, the films in <em>Northern Focus</em> offer stories of community and craft, nostalgia and resilience, and of our neighbours and our heroes. The landscapes – inflected by the traces and echoes of heavy industry – provide engines for activism and altruism, fueled by the subjects’ unassuming beauty and brilliance. In a Sheffield DocFest first, we are taking a spotlight to the filmmakers, artists and talent down the road and round the corner, in hearth and in heart.<br /><br />
