Doc/Fest Exchange


  • International Documentary Festival Sheffield

Project summary

The Doc/Fest Exchange will be a welcoming, free pop-up space in the heart of Sheffield, hosting talks and events where audiences feel part of the discussion. Curated by Erinma Ochu, the Doc/Fest Exchange will host a breakfast reception for all festival audiences, followed by four talks related to the Doc/Fest 2017 talent, stories and experiences.

The Doc/Fest Exchange will be influenced by the festival’s programme, including films nominated for the Doc/Fest Illuminate Award exploring the screen chemistry between human storytelling and scientific understanding.

As part of our expanding cross-platform programming initiative, we will welcome back the Doc/Fest researcher programme. We would like to encourage researchers to connect with storytellers, interactive and virtual reality makers and others who are attending the festival.
