Sheffield International Documentary Festival, the UK's premier event for
international documentary professionals, has today started its search
for films to showcase at this year's festival.
Sheffield Doc/Fest is considering documentaries of any style or subject
from established or debut filmmakers, television or film school
productions for this year's official programme.
Last year Doc/Fest showcased 100 of the finest examples of documentary
film from across the globe, attracting over 1,200 industry delegates
from as far away as Japan and Australia.
The Festival, now in its fifteenth year, will run from 5-9 November
2008. To coincide with the result of the US Presidential Elections,
Doc/Fest will present a number of films and panels around the theme of
Regime Change. Other film strands this year will include Green Docs,
Anti Docs, Bent Docs and Music Docs.
