Our Filmmaker Challenge returns for 2024, bringing 6 exciting new voices to Sheffield to make a short micro documentary under the guidance of filmmaker mentor Julie Cohen.

Returning for the third year running, we are delighted to present our Filmmaker Challenge 2024. Six early-career UK filmmakers have been selected to undertake the challenge of making a film on the fly, with a micro budget and equipment support, as well as mentoring from Oscar and BAFTA-nominated filmmaker Julie Cohen (RBG, Every Body, My Name is Pauli Murray). Working to a tight deadline, filmmakers will respond to the festival theme of Reflections on Reality, with only the deadline as a commissioning constraint. All filming is to be undertaken in a single day in and around Sheffield. This year's cohort of filmmakers joining the challenge will be: Asena Nour, Hannah Ava Dahl, Julia Mervis, Louisa Rechenbach, Marta Miskaryan and Tanicha Toro-Oloto.

Join us for a screening of the finished films + Q&A with the filmmakers and mentor, and see Sheffield through the eyes of our exciting new talents.
