Postcards




We created Postcards as a platform for both emerging and established film-makers to create short documentaries that push the conventions of non-fiction.

Postcards is supported by the Just So Film Fund in association with Sheffield Doc/Fest.

 
The jury comprised Ian and Jane (20,000 Days on Earth), Anna Higgs (Film4) and Matimba Kabalika (BFI).  The series has commissioned 10 films from filmmakers including BAFTA nominee James Newton and BIFA winner Charlie Lynn.  The films have featured on The New York Times, iD, Nowness and have been screened at various festivals.
 
"Passionate, innovative and bold storytelling... The essence of Just So." - Matimba Kabalika, BFI
 
“Sheffield Doc/Fest is thrilled to support Postcards, celebrating boundary-pushing experimentation in the distinct and increasingly significant genre of short form storytelling. Postcards is a thrilling new platform that emboldens emerging and established filmmakers to experiment with new techniques in this thump-to-the-heart genre of documentary making” 
- Liz McIntyre, Director, Sheffield Doc/Fest
