BFI Doc Society Drop-In Day at Sheffield DocFest 2024

Sunday 16 June, 09:30 - 17:15 / Sidney & Matilda, Sheffield

BFI Doc Society invites all non-fiction film talent to join us at our open-access Drop-In Day at DocFest 2024!

Come along to Sidney & Matilda in the morning from 09:30 to register and join one of our info roundtables or 1-2-1s.* Meet our team and find out more about our funds and activities, as well as those of several other organisations - full details below.

The afternoon will bring insightful talks and plenty of opportunities to connect with industry delegates and like-minded creatives.

Open to all, walk-ups welcome - no DocFest delegate pass required.

*Spaces for our roundtables and 1-2-1s are very limited so early registration is recommended. We ask you to only register for a 1-2-1s if you have a specific project to discuss. For general info and queries about our funds, attend the roundtables and case study talks.
