Sheffield Doc/Fest 2021
Celebrating, championing and debating documentary film and art. 4-12 June.
Sheffield Doc/Fest is an international film and arts festival, with a mission to spark imaginations and empower our capacity for change by celebrating, championing and debating documentary film as a collective form of engagement. This year Sheffield Doc/Fest will deliver a hybrid festival by bringing people together in Sheffield, online and across the UK. Join us as we bring a unique programme to BFI Southbank as part of the ‘Live from Sheffield’ series across five nights between Fri 4 – Sat 12 June.
There will no longer be a Sheffield Doc/Fest screening on 13 June, as previously advertised.
