Monday 6 June: Now in its 18th year, Sheffield Doc/Fest, which opens this week with Morgan Spurlock’s Pom Wonderful: The Greatest Movie Ever Made, is the UK’s most important documentary and digital media festival.

The Doc/Fest film and industry programme, which this year boasts a line-up of international guests including Morgan Spurlock, Molly Dineen, Nick Broomfield, Albert Maysles, Steve James and Adam Curtis, is generating unprecedented pre-festival buzz among press and delegates. And despite the fact that it’s just seven months since the last Doc/Fest, this year looks set to attract a record numbers this week!

Themes this year include a 2-day programme of industry sessions which focus on the new industry buzz-word – convergence, including a keynote from Wired contributor Frank Rose. Strands within the 110 plus film programme focus on protest, environment, music and gay, and for the first time, an Outdoor screening programme attended by veteran filmmaker Albert Maysles for the showing of the classic Grey Gardens. Many titles will compete in the award programme which includes the Sheffield Special Jury, Innovation, Green, Youth Jury, Student Doc and Audience Awards, plus the Sheffield Inspiration Award which this year goes to Nick Broomfield.

All films and many sessions are open to the public. For more information contact: www.sheffdocfest.com.
