Docfest panel 2019: ‘Cinema and State: Developing Policy Frameworks for Feature Docs’

Adelphi Suite, Crucible Theatre, Sheffield S1 1DA

UK film policy is almost entirely geared towards fiction, while the unique challenges facing the documentary sector are overlooked. It’s high-time the UK had a bespoke policy framework to support its documentary makers. What kinds of interventions are needed? How should they be developed? This session invites panelists and audience members alike to collectively brainstorm demands to better meet the needs of theatrical docs. The session is part of ‘UK Feature Docs’, an AHRC-funded study of the UK’s feature-length film industry.
