Sheffield Fringe is an artist-led film programming initiative exploring the intersection of art & documentary practices, through screenings, talks, exhibitions and research. Sheffield Fringe was initiated in 2011 to coincide with Sheffield Doc/Fest and was held biennially in Sheffield between 2014-2016. The aim was to create a complimentary space & context to encourage creative collaborations between the contemporary art and documentary communities. It is otherwise a project with no fixed abode, with past activities having taken place in London, New York, Buenos Aires, Istanbul, Izmir, Utrecht and Kingston, Jamaica throughout the years.
Core team: Esther Harris and Minou Norouzi. Tina Borkowski is responsible for the print design and Jonathan Perl for the website.
