So here we are on the final day of Sheffield Doc/Fest 2016.

It's been a long week and I'm really tired but it's also been an excellent experience and I'm sure to attend next year whether we're screening (hopefully) or not.

Over the past week I've seen some amazing films, listen to some incredibly interesting talks and been humbled in the presence of Joanna Lumley and Sir David Attenborough, I've met the wonderful Shane Meadows and I've also spent time with some great people whom I've never met before and who I would love to stay in touch with. I have so many excellent memories of Sheffield Doc/Fest and I'm sad to be saying goodbye, at least for this year.

08:00

No need to stop off at The Hubs this morning which is a welcome omission today; it's straight to breakfast at Wellies again - that'll keep me going!

08:30

Down at the studio again to update the blog and tidy up a bit; can't wait to get rid of the cardboard and packing from the new furniture and bring down the rest of my stuff.

It's been great having the studio in the city during Doc/Fest as I've been able to escape on occasion for some calm and quiet time - assemble more furniture as well but that's almost complete at last.

09:25

Best head out to the first screening of the day: "The Land of the Enlightened" at Beijing Showroom 1 at 10:00.

11:40

Back to back screenings this morning - not long until "City 40" with "Bunkers"

14:00

Up at Doc/Fest Exchange for the last talk of the festival "Digging Deeper..." with Emma Cooper and Jane Gauntlett.

15:10

Back down to the Showroom for a pint - met up with fellow SYFN members and had a nice chat before heading back to the studio.

16:50

Back in the studio now with an excellent coffee from The Holt downstairs; that's the end of my Sheffield Doc/Fest - I'm really sad for it to be over now. I've had such a great time and will definitely be returning next year.
