DocFest Audio Guide 2019

DocFest logo

Sheffield Doc/Fest is one of the world's biggest documentary festivals, featuring six days of film, digital art, talks and live events from 6th to the 11th June 2019.

And there are plenty of ways you can experience some of the action if you have a visual impairment, hearing loss or are deaf.

We have produced an Audio Guide (click the link below) about the festival to help our clients in Sheffield and Rotherham to get the most out of the festival.

 

 

If you are blind or partially-sighted, the festival’s talks programme is packed with events you might enjoy. This year Doc/Fest is welcoming some amazing live speakers, including A-list director Paul Greengrass, TV presenter and Strictly winner Stacey Dooley, and author Nick Hornby. And if you are deaf or living with hearing loss, you could try one of the festival’s subtitled films or a special closed caption screening of singer PJ Harvey’s film, A Dog Called Money.

To discover what's happening at the festival, including details full listings of talks, interactive exhibitions and subtitled films – and for advice on getting to the festival venues, visit sheffdocfest.com. The website also includes information on festival passes, including concession passes, and details of free events.
