Sheffield Doc/Fest new Initiative

Here is a follow-up to the text about joiningthedocs, quite interesting and if I get it right, you don’t have to travel to Sheffield (which by the way could be quite nice!) to watch a selection of the films in the coming festival. Read what is coming up:

“Sheffield Doc/Fest brings the international documentary family together to celebrate the art and business of documentary making for five intense days in November. As part of the 2009 festival, Doc/Fest is partnering with online documentary specialists to offer a selection of the festival’s films online, in an effort to broaden the impact of the festival’s films by bringing them to a larger audience. is building a dedicated microsite for Doc/Fest’s online festival coverage, using a powerful new video platform. Each film will have a page dedicated to it, similar to the style of Doc/Fest’s current Videotheque. Visitors will be able to watch a trailer, purchase the film for a high-quality streaming experience, leave comments, and if they are a professional industry member, contact the film’s producer directly.” (photo: Nick Broomfield, retro-serie at the festival in 2008)
