Our virtual session series continues on Thursday 9 July at 11:00 (BST) with Factual Television in Times of Economic Crisis.
The Sheffield Doc/Fest Marketplace is a major funding, sales and distribution platform of match made meetings for business collaborations and to unlock UK and international market opportunities
The Marketplace comprises MeetMarket, the Alternate Realities Talent Market, Marketplace Sessions, Marketplace Summit, as well as our different Pitch Opportunities, and is open to everyone from first-time filmmakers to established talent. The Marketplace also offers Festival guidance through the Market Switchboard. In addition to this, we have our initiatives Meet the Execs and Doc/Dinner.
We believe that no other marketplace offers the intimacy and chance for personal connections that Doc/Fest does. Every year, large numbers of deals are done in Sheffield outside of our formal events, and we'll be delighted to help you to make connections where we can.
