Sheffield Doc/Fest's Alternate Realities programme explores the changing forms of non-fiction through experimenting with technology and sensory components.

Comprised of a public exhibition, an exhibition tour, a commission, a talent market and a day long summit, it is the platform to discover the most challenging, powerful and potent digital artworks from around the world. It endeavours to expose the social and ethical properties of showcasing developing technology, whilst ensuring that subject matter is never secondary.

The 2019 Festival programme will be announced in May 2019.
