The Sheffield Doc/Fest Marketplace is a major funding, sales and distribution platform of match made meetings for business collaborations and to unlock UK and international market opportunities

The Marketplace comprises MeetMarket, the Alternate Realities Talent Market, Marketplace Sessions, Marketplace Summit, as well as our different Pitch Opportunities, and is open to everyone from first-time filmmakers to established talent. The Marketplace also offers Festival guidance through the Market Switchboard.

Outside of the Festival during the year, Doc/Fest offers year-round training aimed at developing your skills for the UK and international market, with initiatives including the specialist producer training Future Producer School.

We believe that no other marketplace offers the intimacy and chance for personal connections that Doc/Fest does. Every year, large numbers of deals are done in Sheffield outside of our formal events, and we'll be delighted to help you to make connections where we can.
