Another highlight was the film Vessel, telling the story of the Women on Waves organisation, a team of women who, with their Dutch ship anchored 12 miles outside of jurisdictions, attempt to bring safe abortions to women in countries (including Ireland!) that don’t provide them. Excellent film and hopefully coming here soon.

Next up of my highlights at Sheffield DocFest was Nonny La Pena’s ‘Project Syria’ another immersive documentary this time using the technology of Occulus Rift. Very powerful.

Just back from an amazing few days days at Sheffield International Documentary Festival where I saw some pretty inspiring work including lots of cross-platform, hybrid forms of documentary. There were many highlights…first up Anagram’s Door Into the Dark. Described as an ‘immersive documentary’ it involved being led in total darkness with blindfold and headphones on an extraordinary adventure. One of my favourites of the festival.

Nonny de la Pena uses Oculus Rift as a means of virtual documentary in ‘Project Syria’. I tried this tonight at Sheffield Doc Fest. Amazing experience and fascinating use of technology in the field of documentary.
