  • Site Gallery Square

    We are very excited this year to be partnering with Site Gallery and the City of Ideas Consortium to transform the square outside Site Gallery into the festival hub for the Alternate Realities programme.

    Site Gallery Square will feature street food vans provided by Sheffield's own Peddler Market, an Alternate Realities dedicated box office for booking projects in the exhibition and VR cinema, and a 360° video dome provided by Igloo, where you can view projects featuring in the VR cinema, so it's a great chance to view any films you weren't able to book onto.

    The Alternate Realities exhibition is free and open to all, with advance booking required for specific projects: the Virtual and Augmented Reality experiences in Site Gallery; the 360 screenings in the Igloo Dome on Site Gallery Square; the VR Cinema screenings at the Performance Lab. These can be booked on the day of the event at the Alternate Realities Box Office on Site Gallery Square. Places are subject to availability.

    If you have any questions, or for booking, please contact the Doc/Fest Box office on boxoffice [at] sheffdocfest.com for information on availability.

  • Craft Summit: Sound Unbound

    Sound is sometimes sidelined by the dominance of image and story in documentary making. And yet it can have a powerful effect on the audience, working in a more evocative and subliminal way on our perception of the film. Focussing on documentaries at this year’s festival which immerse the audience in sound, we will explore with their designers how the audio landscape is integral to the cinematic experience.

    The Sound is Innocent directed by Johana Ožvold is screening at the festival.
