Sheffield Doc/Fest presents 1 film...
Sheffield Doc/Fest’s 2020 film programme is the result of a long and thoughtful collective process of research, discussion and selection, where we tried to work with newly created film strands, as different colours in the same spectrum: cinema in its formal and narrative plurality.
You can browse all the films in our 2020 Official Selection here.
The films available online from 10 June - 10 July are available to all public audiences on our online platform, Sheffield Doc/Fest Selects.
You will be able to buy tickets to individual and groups of films here. Our Industry audiences can access these films on Doc/Player. - our industry platform and this will be available to them with a Digital Industry Pass. Details of the pass are available here.
A portion of the films in our Official Selection will also be available in the cinema in Sheffield and on Sheffield Doc/Fest Selects in Autumn 2020.
