Sheffield Doc/Fest director steps down

International film festival Doc/Fest has today announced that Elizabeth McIntyre is leaving her role as CEO and festival director, a position she’s held for three years.

Alex Graham, Sheffield Doc/Fest chair, said: “I am immensely proud of what Liz has achieved these last three years. Her professionalism and vision have created a fertile environment for her talented senior team to deliver increasingly pioneering and compelling festival programmes, widely celebrated by both industry and public audiences. She is leaving Doc/Fest in great shape. On behalf of the board, I would like to thank her for her passion and brilliance, and I wish her very well for the future.”

Liz McIntyre said: “It has been an absolute honour and privilege to play my part in the Doc/Fest story, a festival I dearly love, culminating in the delivery of the 25th edition.  I would like to offer my heartfelt thanks to the team, Board, Advisory and all supporters for both wonderful collaborations and friendships.”

Sheffield Doc/Fest will launch recruitment in September.
