Documentary opportunity

Have your say

SHEFFIELD Doc/Fest 2013 is offering a new mentoring scheme, specifically aimed at regional documentary filmmakers.

Fast Track to Features is a combination of workshops, mentoring and networking events focusing on preparing feature documentary-makers to attract the interest of funders, distributors and festivals.

The scheme, developed by Doc/Fest and Creative England, in partnership with Creative Skillset, is aimed exclusively at regional and diverse documentary talent.

It will see filmmakers – from outside the film hotbed that is London – build alliances between documentary professionals in different regions, where networking among the documentary community is poor.

To apply, visit the Sheffield Doc/Fest before January 18.
