Sheffield Doc/Fest believes in the power of ideas that can bring together the different disciplines working inside and outside of the documentary industry. We also believe in how challenging and breaking down preconceived ideas can create more vibrant and resilient concepts. This, combined with our commitment to presenting high-quality well-produced sessions, means that the Academy of Ideas is a perfect partner for us in thumbing a nose at the status quo.

"Just when Kant's formulation that 'the public exercise of reason should be free' had begun to seem so remote and exhausted, the Battle should reinforce one's faith in the enduring worth of dissent and of the free traffic in ideas"
