Submit to MeetMarket and the Alternate Realities Market

MeetMarket is a unique pitching initiative which matchmakes documentary and interactive media makers' most innovative project ideas with international Decision Makers for one-to-one meetings in a fully supportive environment.

The Alternate Realities Market runs parallel to the MeetMarket, but offers a focused pitching opportunity for projects which are led by digital or interactive media.

Submissions to Sheffield Doc/Fest's MeetMarket and Alternate Realities Market 2017 are now open, to submit a project please click here. Submissions close on 16 March at 17:00 GMT.

If you have any questions about Market submissions please view our guidelines or contact
