We had a blast at this year's Doc/Fest. Have a read of our festival highlights from the must-see panels right through to our favourite Q&A's.
DIRECTORS ROUNDTABLE LIVE STREAM - GEMMA
"My highlight was testing out the Mevo for the first time with the Dogwoof Directors Roundtable. A hugely successful, enjoyable and soon to be repeated event!"
VR - AIPING
"I had my first immersive Virtual Reality experience in Sheffield Doc/Fest. The Fight to Defend the Heart of the Amazon was the best VR film among all I've watched and the filmmaker gave me a hug after I told her this."
AUDIENCE AWARD WINNER - OLI
"I'd like to mention how great it was to see The Work win the Audience Award. It is so rewarding to see this film connect with audiences in such a fantastic way - the filmmakers are an utter joy to work with, and truly encapsulate the heart of documentary filmmaking."
DOGWOOF DINNER - CLEO
"Our Dogwoof Dinner was a useful opportunity to meet with the filmmakers and key attendees as the festival kicked off. Thank you to everybody that made it!"
WHITNEY 'CAN I BE ME' PREMIERE - RUPINDER
"There were too many to choose from, but if I had to pick I’d say my highlight was the WHITNEY ‘Can I Be Me’ premiere. It was fantastic event pulled together with the help of a amazing team."
THE BBC INTERVIEW - ANNA G
"Louis Theroux interviewing Nick Broomfield was incredible. Two powerhouse figures in British documentary in conversation with one another? It can’t be beaten!"
THE WORK Q&A - YUNG
"It was amazing seeing the audience completely captivated by The Work Q&A. The film had such a positive response the whole way through the festival. The fact that it went on to win the Audience Award was just perfect."
DOGWOOF DRINKS - LUCY
"During my first time at Sheffield Doc/Fest, I was impressed by the success of our Dogwoof Drinks. It was great to see filmmakers and doc-lovers alike come together to talk about their time at the festival (especially with an open bar and some new Dogwoof swag)."
THE DIRECTORS - ANA V
"My best moment was seeing Dina director Dan Sickles taking a picture of our Dogwoof party in the Sheffield DINA bar to send to Dina herself. Little things like that are magical."
WHITNEY PARTY - DAN
"On Sunday there was the ‘I Will Always Love Docs’ party. This Whitney themed event was great fun. If you were around you may have been able to spot a certain Mr. Broomfield enjoying the music choices too."
PANEL - DOROTTYA
"I was part of a panel titled ‘How to Market & Build an Audience’ as part of the fest's Sales & Distribution Day. The turnout and the engagement was brilliant!"
BIRTHDAY AT SHEFFIELD - KONSTANTINOS
"There couldn't have been a better way to spend my birthday than at Doc/Fest. Being in and among the latest and greatest docs was an epic way to celebrate!"
