iW NEWS | "Joy Division" To Open Sheffield Doc/Fest

The European premiere of Grant Gee‘s documentary “Joy Division” will open the 14th Sheffield Doc/Fest with the filmmaker and former Joy Division band members present at the screening. The fest also announced over 100 films that will screen over 5 days, including 22 World, 7 European and 23 UK premieres. A new addition to the festival is nightly “film strands,” in which there will be a music doc, sports doc and a “controversial” doc (called an “Anti-Doc”) running each night. Also running throughout the festival is an environmentally themed program called “green docs” and “bent docs,” which will showcase gay/lesbian and transgender documentaries. [Peter Knegt]
