Industry Conference at Sheffield Doc/Fest 2016

For the sixth year running, Documentary Campus and Sheffield Doc/Fest are co-presenting the largest Industry Conference in Europe.

The packed five-day programme (10-15 June) presents a fantastic line-up of hand-picked sessions that dive into the Film and Alternate Realities programmes and bring to the table the key industry topics of the day. The programme comprises of over 60 sessions, including talent talks, masterclasses, and commissioners' panels, which cast light on all long and short form documentaries for all platforms.

At this year’s Industry Conference, you will hear insights from documentary innovators who dare to step out into the new worlds that open doors to wider audiences, unexplored finance options, and new co-production opportunities.
