Sheffield DocFest

Future Producer School - Training Programme

Future Producer School, created by Sheffield DocFest and Bungalow Town Productions, has returned! Established in 2014 and successfully running until 2019, the scheme is back to develop documentary producing talent. 

Aimed at emerging producers currently working in the industry, the primary outcome of Future Producer School is to develop industry partnerships and provide industry knowledge and experience to up-and-coming producers that have the ambition to become international feature documentary producers.

Future Producer School will help producers with limited exposure to key experience necessary in delivering feature documentary projects – in finance, distribution, production management, pitching and presenting projects to the industry in the UK and internationally. 

Open for documentary filmmakers!

We're open for entries to the 30th edition of Sheffield DocFest!
