Delegations offer an opportunity to take Scotland-based producers and filmmakers to the core of the international documentary scene and some of its most prominent festivals, thanks to the support of Creative Scotland.

Sheffield Doc/Fest is the UK’s premier documentary festival, celebrating the art and business of documentary; a hub for all documentary and factual content across all platforms, from feature length to shorts, and including interactive and virtual reality projects. Sheffield Doc/Fest will run from 6-11 June 2019.

Applications are NOW CLOSED for the delegation but if your application is not successful, we can still offer you one of a limited number of discounted passes on a first-come, first-served basis (£209 + VAT). Get in touch with us after selections have been announced if you are interested. The deadline to claim one of these is 9 May 2019.

For any further questions, please contact us on

Scottish Documentary Institute is committed to offering clear and accessible application processes open to everyone. On request this information is available in alternative formats. We offer access support to disabled applicants, tailored to individual requests and our team can offer advice to new applicants and support them to make an application.
