Sheffield Doc/Fest 2020

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.

Sheffield Doc/Fest is an international film and arts festival and marketplace, with a mission to spark imaginations and empower our capacity for change by celebrating, championing and debating documentary film and art as a collective form of engagement.

As an internationalist and inclusive festival, Doc/Fest embodies a commitment to equality and access for all communities, bringing together established creatives, new voices and the host city Sheffield to shape and question stories of the world we live in.

Having moved their 28th edition online in June, the 2020 festival continues over the Autumn, both physically at Showroom Cinema and online on Sheffield Doc/Fest Selects over October and November.

The fourth and final of Doc/Fest's weekender programmes is Ghost & Apparitions which, in line with the latest Government restrictions, will be available online:

Ghost & Apparitions

Friday 13 - Thursday 26 November - WATCH ONLINE

More experimental films, playing with form and showcasing the dismantling of frontiers based on histories and collective memory.
