Sheffield DocFest, the UK’s leading documentary festival, presents three films from their 2022 programme, all with a link to the city of Sheffield.
Each film will be followed by a short Q&A with the director and collaborators.
Making-With (9 mins) – The fungus that first facilitated life on earth, 470 million years ago, again inspires new worlds in this collaborative film by artist Gregory Herbert and mycologist Professor Katie J. Field from the School of Biosciences at the University of Sheffield.
Ramble On (31 mins) – Right to Roam campaigner Terry Howard journeys across the Sheffield moorlands in this gentle cinematic ramble from director Charlie Thorne, which tells the story of the fight to reclaim England’s stolen ground.
A film about Studio Electrophonique (59 mins) – Director James Taylor explores the little-known story of Sheffield-based Studio Electrophonique, which nurtured a generation of superstars such as ABC, The Human League, Heaven 17, Clock DVA and Pulp.
