The festival was fantastic again this year, highlights being a trip out to watch the beautiful film Happiness in a cave, The Devil's Arse, in Hope Valley, a totally spectacular event, and seeing Love Is All in the beautiful grounds of Chatsworth, with a fantastic sound track from Sheffield's own Richard Hawley. I was also honoured to attend the John Pilger in Converation, such an inspiring man. There were loads of other fantastic events, masterclasses and films, way too many to even mention.
We had promising talks and forged good relationships with Dogwoof, Century Films, BBC Storyville, Together Films, We Are Colony, Molinare, The Wellcome Trust, Directors UK, Women in Film and TV UK, Women Make Movies and Espresso TV to name but a few. We also talked with Editors, Producers and Directors and will be following many on of these up now.
We're really proud to host this fantastic festival in Sheffield, and it's great to be able to attend such a good event and still go home and sleep in your own bed at the end of a busy day.
Lets hope the meetings become fruitful and great things happen now to help Still Loved get completed and on your screens as soon as possible.
In the meantime I'll be glued to the Doc Fest video tech watching all the films I didn't get time to see there!
