Martin Scorsese Masterclass in Cannes services and offers


Sheffield DocFest

Sheffield Doc/Fest brings the international documentary family together to celebrate the art and business of documentary making for five intense days in November. Doc/Fest is a film festival, industry session programme and market place, offering pitching opportunities, controversial discussion panels and in-depth filmmaker masterclasses, as well as a wealth of inspirational documentary films from across the globe.


Sheffield Doc/Fest and Northern Film and Media invite you to a special 2-day documentary pitching and marketplace workshop


Sheffield Doc/Fest and Northern Film and Media invite you to a special 2-day documentary pitching and marketplace workshop


Sheffield Doc/Fest is inviting North-East documentary producers and
filmmakers to attend a special FREE two-day workshop in Newcastle on
February 26th and 27th, offering complete preparation for getting your
project funded internationally, including at Doc/Fest’s Marketplace


This workshop is an intensive introduction to the MeetMarket
process, to all Marketplace activities at the festival, and to wider
opportunities in international documentary pitching and funding. Over 2
days, we offer an exclusive window into the priorities of the
international documentary market. This is a chance to learn what UK,
European, North American and other decision-makers are looking for
right now from you, culminating in a chance to pitch your idea to key
UK commissioning editors at the end of the workshop.


“This workshop will aid anyone making documentary film and give you confidence to make your film”

“The best investment in time for directors and producers looking to sell their work”

“An extremely eye opening workshop that both informed me on the pitching process but also filled me with self confidence”

Doc/Fest Pitching Workshop participants 2008


Taking place in Newcastle on February 26th and 27th, the workshop is
an opportunity for producers and filmmakers in the North East to
develop projects one-on-one with the Doc/Fest team, as well as peers.
Led by international marketplace specialist Christina Burnett and
featuring a chance to pitch to national TV commissioning editors, this
is an invaluable opportunity to refine both your ideas and project
presentation skills.


Projects can be at any stage of development. Last year's workshops
led directly to 7 of the 21 UK projects eventually selected for
MeetMarket. There are also many other opportunities to pitch your
project at Sheffield if you are not in the MeetMarket and this workshop
will help you prepare for all the market opportunities at the festival.

Places for this workshop are very limited. To express interest, and for more information, please email Marketplace Producer Charlie Phillips stating your Name and Company (or if you are freelance), along with a
one-page pitch for the project that you’d like to work with at the
workshop and apply to the Doc/Fest Marketplace with. Your project can
be at any stage of development, for any platform, and any genre as long
it is a factual project.


This workshop has been made possible through the kind support of Northern Film and Media
