Sheffield DocFest 2008

The organisers say: "Documentaries that were pitched at Doc/Fest's very own MeetMarket. They came to us in various stages of development - we matched them up with the right people, they got along, and the docs were made. If you are making docs or a fan of documentary in general, you can't fail to love this collection of films that have a little bit in Sheffield in all of them. Catch them now on their trajectory to stardom."
