On Saturday 7th June at the magnificent City Hall the 21st Sheffield Doc/Fest will officially open with the European Premiere of PULP.

A Film about Life, Death and Supermarkets, attended by the director Florian Habicht, producer Alex Boden of Pistachio Pictures Production and band-members: Jarvis Cocker, Nick Banks, Candida Doyle, Steve Mackey and Mark Webber.

This opening night event will be live satellite broadcast to cinemas nationwide including the BFI Southbank plus Cineworld, Curzon, Everyman, Odeon, Picturehouse, and VUE chains.

By turns funny, moving, life-affirming and (occasionally) bewildering, PULP is a music-film like no other. Florian Habicht unveils the deep affection that the inhabitants of Sheffield have for Pulp, and the formative effect the town has had on the band’s music (and front-man Jarvis Cocker’s lyrics in particular).

Says Hussain Currimbhoy, Director of Programming, “I can’t think of a better film to open this year’s fest with than Florian’s PULP. And to have the whole band together to talk about the film after the screening is going to be awesome”.

Sheffield Doc/Fest takes place across Sheffield and the Peak District from Saturday 7 to Thursday 12 June. The full festival programme will be launched on 8 May.

PULP will be released nationwide by Soda Pictures on 6th June.

A Pistachio Pictures Production in association with Altitude Film Sales, British Film Company, Screen Yorkshire and Soda Pictures. Screen Yorkshire invested in PULP through its Yorkshire Content Fund.
