2024 Virtual Reality Programme Entries Open

Two Doc Crew members fitting people with virtual reality headsets at the Sheffield DocFest 2023

Sheffield DocFest will present a Virtual Reality Programme as part of it's 31st edition, which will take place from 12 - 17 June 2024. Entries are now open.

The 2024 Sheffield DocFest Virtual Reality programme aims to highlight new creative techniques and storytelling which break the boundaries of traditional documentary practice. We are looking for the best pieces of work that explore the intersection between art, technology and documentary.  We encourage entries from independent artists and collectives and from established artists or emerging new talent.

The selected projects will be competing for the Sheffield DocFest 2024 Virtual Reality Award.



Read through our Virtual Reality Programme Entry Guidelines for more information about what we're looking for and our eligibility criteria. If you have any questions, please email our Programme team at alternaterealities@sheffdocfest.com.
