Sheffield Doc Fest is a world leading and the UK’s premier documentary festival, celebrating the art and business of documentary and all non-fiction storytelling.
Our Talks programme this year encompasses the full spectrum of the documentary world: conversations with exciting emerging filmmakers, world renowned directors and popular talent. We welcome an Academy Award and BAFTA winner, a vlogging slumflower, a Hollywood blockbuster, a cosmic archaeologist, a hip hop Godfather, a YouTube sensation, a Strictly winner and an indisputable legend.
In this special focus, we bring into the foreground the collaborative power of those who have contributed to shaping new futures in Britain using the medium of film. Riding the wave of the politically radical sentiments that characterised the late sixties and seventies, new filmmaking formations bloomed, making possible the candid and creative documentation of life as it is experienced by female and non-binary people where it would not have been within traditional hierarchies of film and broadcasting.
