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 marketplace@sidf.co.uk.


Submit a Talk or Session Idea

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

To submit an idea you will need to create a Submittable account.

The deadline for ideas is 5pm (GMT), Monday 23 January 2017.

Please email nigel.fischer@sidf.co.uk if you would like to discuss an idea before submitting.
