Showcasing the best documentary making talent from around the world, it included screenings, panel discussions and filmmaking masterclasses, with lots of opportunities to meet the talent.
Running from November 4 to 8, the festival celebrated its fourth year of being carbon free and one of its most successful years as a film industry marketplace, with over £10M worth of deals being made and several films securing distribution.
