Virtual Reality Programme Entries

  • Virtual Reality Project

Virtual Reality Programme entries are now open for the 31st edition of Sheffield DocFest, which will take place from Wednesday 12 June to Monday 17 June 2024.

This programme aims to highlight new creative techniques and storytelling which break the boundaries of traditional documentary practise We are looking for best pieces that explore the intersection between art, technology and documentary.  We encourage entries from independent artists and collectives and from established artists or emerging new talent.

The selected projects will be competing for the Sheffield DocFest 2024 Virtual Reality Award.

Before applying, we strongly suggest you read our Virtual Reality Programme Entry Guidelines for more information about what we're looking for and our eligibility criteria.

If you have any questions, please email our Programme team at
