We are always interested to discuss ideas for the Talks programme and on the look out for experienced industry professionals to produce sessions.
The 2018 Talks & Sessions programme covered the full spectrum of industry topics for all durations and all platforms, from feature length films to series to online shorts, with insights from over 200 leading directors, producers, commissioners, distributors and on-screen talent.
Recordings of the talks and sessions from both this year, and previous Festivals, are available on the Doc/Fest Youtube Channel.
