The world premiere of the Martin Scorsese and David Tedeschi directed film, The New York Review of Books is the headline of the 2014 Sheffield Doc/Fest this June.

That is one of 21 world premieres, 12 European premieres and 24 UK premieres being screened at the event, which opens with the music documentary, Pulp: A Film About Life, Death and Supermarkets.

Speakers include artists Grayson Perry and Jeremy Deller; Arts Council England chair, Peter Bazalgette; musician Brian Eno; and film-maker, John Pilger.

There will, once more, be a mixture of music and screen, with Kim Longinoto’s Love is All, complete with a soundtrack by Sheffield’s Richard Hawley; and the festival will close with Saint Etienne performing the live soundtrack to Paul Kelly’s How We Used To Live - a montage of footage from London.
