Sheffield Doc/Fest report

Sheffield’s annual celebration of the documentary form and market place event continues to grow under the leadership of festival director, Heather Croall, with nearly 2000 delegates in attendance at Doc/Fest this year. The introduction of the MeetMarket funding forum in 2006 added a new strand to the five day festival, which also offers a wealth of screenings and sessions for documentary film-makers enthusiasts alike. In addition to screening over 120 international documentaries and a schedule of sessions including approximately 250 speakers, this year’s Doc/Fest welcomed luminaries such as Joan Rivers, Rolf Harris, BBC1 controller Danny Cohen and Oscar winner Kevin Macdonald.  (cont. @ Film&Festivals Magazine)
