Groups of people sat at tables, in discussion, in a grand hall.

Entries for our 2024 MeetMarket are now closed.

The Sheffield DocFest Marketplace is a major funding, sales and distribution platform of match made meetings for collaborations and to unlock UK and international market opportunities. 

The programme comprises MeetMarket, the Alternate Realities Talent Market, Amplify: Production Talent, Filmmaker Challenge, industry talks, as well as our different pitch opportunities, and is open to everyone from first-time filmmakers to established talent. 

We believe that no other place offers the intimacy and chance for personal connections that DocFest does. Every year, large numbers of deals are done in Sheffield outside of our formal events, and we'll be delighted to help you to make connections where we can.

Our flagship industry event, the MeetMarket, for new documentary features and series will have its 19th edition in 2024. Project entries are now open, and will close on 6 February 2024.
