D2DXX is an innovative new 2-stage programme designed exclusively for 12 female creatives to harness the full potential of digital technology to revolutionise the way you work and the work you produce.

Utilising the successful Devise 2 Deliver format, D2DXX begins as a 2-day event covering technologies, production, funding and distribution for interactive and cross platform projects. Day 1 will feature talks from a range of experts followed by a hands-on workshop on Day 2.

The second stage at Sheffield Doc/Fest is an opportunity to meet selected funders and buyers in the festival marketplace. Attendees will also be given a guide to opportunities at Doc/Fest that will help them develop their projects.

D2DXX is supported by Creative Skillset and in partnership with Crossover Labs and MeWe360.
