Digital Industry Pass 2020

Complementary to our autumn programme of film screenings, talks, panels, artists’ events and community engagement activities across Sheffield, some of our films and activities are moving online. For those in the industry, the best way to connect is through our Digital Industry Pass. The Digital Industry Pass is available to filmmakers, artists and members of the film, digital art and related industries.

The Digital Industry Pass gives you access to the following programme available from June to November 2020:

- Doc/Player – our online industry screening platform offering a curated programme of new films from all over the world, from across our non-competitive film strands: ‘Into the World’, ‘Rhyme & Rhythm’, ‘Ghosts & Apparitions’ and ‘Rebellions’. The Doc/Player will run from 8 June until 31 August 2020. Films will be added as we go along and some will be there for a limited period of time - we recommend getting the pass early.

- Streaming of 6+ talks and panels throughout June, July and August.

- Pre-recorded access to our annual pitches: The Whickers Pitch and Chicken & Egg (Egg)celerator Lab Pitch in June

- Streaming of talks with filmmakers and on-screen talent taking place in Sheffield during our autumn weekenders: September to November tbc. 

The programme of Doc/Player films, our online activities and autumn weekenders will be announced on Monday 8 June.
