Sheffield DocFest picks

Each spring, the world of documentary filmmaking gathers in cultural venues across the city for Sheffield DocFest.

DocFest is the UK’s leading documentary festival and one of the world’s most influential markets for non-fiction projects. It returns for its 31st edition on 12–17 June 2024, inviting audiences to engage in Reflections On Realities.

Over six days, the festival offers space for inspiration, debate, development, learning and challenge. It presents its programme under seven strands: Rhythms, Rebellions, People & Community, Memories, Journeys, Debates and Short Films. Alongside the films is the free Alternate Realities exhibition at Site Gallery, plus talks with special guests.
