Britdoc goes on the road

Festival combines with Sheffield Doc/Fest

LONDON — U.K. feature doc fest Britdoc, which debuted in 2006, has ditched its annual summer three-day event in Oxford to take to the road partnering with major fests instead.

This year, Britdoc partners with leading docu fest Sheffield Doc/Fest, which started Wednesday.

“It’s our hope that by pooling our expertise, we can double the benefits to filmmakers,” said Heather Croall, director of Sheffield Doc/Fest.
