Submit to MeetMarket and the Alternate Realities Market

Submissions to Sheffield Doc/Fest's MeetMarket and Alternate Realities Market 2017 will open in January.

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.

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

Submit a Session

Sheffield Doc/Fest includes over 60 panel sessions, masterclasses and filmmaker interviews. Each year ideas for sessions come from the Doc/Fest team, our partners Documentary Campus, our broadcast supporters (Channel 4, BBC, ITV and Sky) and from the open call for session ideas.

The open call for session submissions has now closed. Submissions for the 2017 festival will open in October
