More Sex & Docs & Rock ‘N Roll

Sheffield Doc/Fest is little more than three weeks away. The festival continues to live up to it´s reputation of great documentaries and great parties. The festival is the biggest of it´s kind in the UK and one of the most important documentary film festivals in Europe. This documentary fiesta is a mixture of hundreds of documentaries, industry sessions, marketplace activities, masterclasses, Q&A´s and last but not least parties and social events. ‘More Sex & Docs & Rock ‘N Roll’ is a slogan in the festival trailer indicating lots of fun, few hangovers and yeah, maybe moral hangovers for those who go all in.

List of all films can be found here. There are some familiar titles on this year´s festival program, titles that have previously been written about on Docs & film Festivals. Those include;
