IN SHEFFIELD | Jerwood First

So, I am in Sheffield, England serving on the jury for the Jerwood First Cuts Documentary Award at the 12th Sheffield International Documentary Film Festival. This is the second year that the fest is recognizing work from UK film and media students with the prize. The Showroom Cinema/Bar/Cafe here in Sheffield, home of the fest, is situated in the university area of town and the fest seems populated with a mix of local students and doc professionals. So far so good…

We’ve had a chance to sample an array of new fests at indieWIRE recently. Brian Brooks is still raving about his trip to the 2nd Reykjavik International Film Festival, as evidenced by today’s festival report, while Jonny Leahan is currently in Mexico, having an amazing time at the 3rd Festival Internacional de Cine de Morelia. We’ll have his report from that fest next week.
