Sheffield DocFest 2022

Tom Grieve, Cinema Editor

Sheffield Doc/Fest, 23–28 June 2022 - Book now

Shefield DocFest returns this for 2022 with the promise of another boundary-pushing, global celebration of all things documentary.

As in previous years, expect a mix of vital politically-minded work, exciting aesthetic experiments, previews of upcoming docs from the world of film and television, as well as hot-off-the-press shorts from brand new voices.

The festival has never been shy about feting documentary in all of its forms, so look out for events beyond the cinema screen, from audio pieces to virtual reality spaces.

The 2022 line-up has yet to be announced, but we’ll provide a preview here when Sheffield DocFest announces its programme of screenings, events and special guests.
