Sheffield DocFest Selects is our video on demand online festival which offers you a curated programme of films from all over the world, from our Official Selection 2021, across our competitions and strands which include: Opening and Closing Films, International Competition, UK Competition, Special Screenings, Into the World, Rebellions, Rhyme & Rhythm, Ghosts & Apparitions, Northern Focus, Retrospective and DocFest Exchange.

Selects will be available for booking for UK-based audiences from 17 May until 13 June, with most films becoming available to watch for a 72 hour window between 4 - 13 June, or until capacity is reached. Films will be released on the same schedule as their cinema screening in Sheffield.

Sheffield DocFest is an international film and arts festival and marketplace with a mission to spark imaginations and empower our capacity for change by celebrating, championing and debating documentary film and art as a collective form of engagement.

DocFest looks to question the boundaries of documentary film through a programme that challenges trends, brings diversity and enriches debate. The festival invites audiences to engage with experiences and stories from different parts of the world and to join makers in inspiring moments.

The 28th edition will be a hybrid festival taking place 4–13 June, in Sheffield, in cinemas across the UK and online on Sheffield DocFest Selects.
