Sheffield Doc/Fest welcomes local-to-global legends Shane Meadows and Mark Herbert
Tuesday 14 June, 16.30, Doc/Fest Exchange on Tudor Square
Sheffield Doc/Fest is delighted to welcome close friends and long-term collaborators, acclaimed, award-winning writer and filmmaker Shane Meadows and producer and CEO Mark Herbert of award-winning Sheffield-based indie Warp Films (Dead Man’s Shoes (2004, This is England (2006 to 2015), and music documentary The Stone Roses: Made of Stone (2013)), for an informal conversation at the Doc/Fest Exchange on Tudor Square.
The conversation will take in a discussion about Shane and Mark’s current work; Shane’s mentoring of three emerging Nottingham based filmmakers through the process of making their first mockumentary series, his own future plans, and Mark’s current and future factual plans at Warp Films.
Says Liz McIntyre, Sheffield Doc/Fest CEO & Festival Director, “If there’s an event that encapsulates the spirit of Doc/Fest, it’s Shane and Mark talking together, sharing their expertise and inspiring the new generation of filmmakers with their stories at the Doc/Fest Exchange in Tudor Square: their shared quest for authenticity, Shane’s commitment to identifying and nurturing new talent in the worlds of TV and cinema and Mark’s commitment to the City of Sheffield and their outstanding slate, will make for an inspiring session at Doc/Fest.”
Doc/Fest Exchange, supported by Wellcome Trust, will host a series of conversations and creative exchanges inspired by extraordinary talent, groundbreaking films and interactive and virtual reality storytelling.
