Doc/Fest also announced that world snooker champion Ronnie O’Sullivan would attend the festival to reveal the documentaries that have inspired him throughout his life and career.

He will be in conversation on June 13 at Sheffield’s Crucible Theatre, where he has won five world championship titles over the years.

In addition, Chariots Of Fire producer David Puttnam, who is currently chairing an inquiry into the future of public service broadcasting in the UK, is to debate the future of the BBC and Channel 4 at Doc/Fest on June 14.

Liz McIntyre, Sheffield Doc/Fest CEO and festival director said: “The ability of the documentary art-form to attract the fiercest intellects, individual thinkers and ground-breaking innovation is no-better demonstrated than here.

“I am thrilled to present to audiences this true diversity of talent across the festival’s three programme strands, as well as Europe’s first demonstration of USC Shoah Foundation’s world leading cutting edge technology in Alternate Realities.

“I am also delighted that Lord David Puttnam has chosen Doc/Fest to hear from Yorkshire and other audiences about the future of public service broadcasting.”

The full festival programme will be announced on May 5.
