Sheffield Doc/Fest Future Producer School is now open for applications. Future Producer School is a six-month training initiative run in association with Bungalow Town Productions, Public Media Alliance and Sheffield Doc/Fest, in which ambitious and dedicated producers receive mentoring and training from some of the most exciting producers in the documentary industry today.

Returning for its third year, the scheme aims to:

  • Give producers the training they need to take their careers to the international documentary industry
  • Prepare producers to work internationally with directors, funders, distributors and festivals
  • Prepare producers to access and capitalise on international festivals and markets
  • Build alliances and spark collaborations between documentary professionals across the world
  • Increase the number of highly trained producers in the documentary industry and create a self sustaining peer-to-peer network of ‘Future Producers’

The scheme is aimed at producers who want to develop feature documentaries with the ultimate goal of multi-platform releases in several international markets. It is not an entry-level talent programme.

How to apply: For further information about the scheme as well as how to apply and contact information please see the Sheffield Doc/Fest website
