Doc/Fest makes video archive available online


Doc/Fest, the Sheffield based documentary festival, has made its massive library of discussion and Q&A sessions available online, for free. 

Each year, alongside the exhibition of new and notable documentary films, Doc/Fest puts together panel discussions, interviews and presentations on a wide range of subjects. These sessions attract some of the industry’s brightest and most influential people, and are usually only available to those with £300 delegate passes.

Archive highlights from last year’s conference include the fascinating panel discussion on Wikileaks with the Guardian’s James Ball and The Frontline Club’s Vaughan Smith and the masterclass with Nick Broomfield.

This year’s festival opens on June 13th, and promises appearances from A.A. Gill, #occupy live streamer Tim Pool and Emily Bell, who will be familiar to listeners of The Guardian’s Media Talk podcast. Students are eligible for a hefty discount on delegate passes from here.
