Sheffield DocFest

Moonage Daydream

Oval Hall | Sheffield City Hall

Moonage Daydream will thrill David Bowie fans and film-lovers alike. Join us for the Opening Night of Sheffield DocFest 2022 for the UK premiere of Brett Morgen’s documentary at the legendary City Hall where Bowie played 50 years ago this June.

The ‘People’s Premiere’ takes place at City Hall - 50 years since David Bowie first played the historic Sheffield music venue in June 1972.

This glorious cinematic odyssey features kaleidoscopic imagery, personal archive footage and unseen performances, all anchored by Bowie’s own music and words.

Sheffield DocFest is the UK’s leading documentary festival and one of the world’s most influential markets for documentary projects. The festival champions and presents the breadth of documentary form – film, television, immersive and art – in our vibrant city each June. The festival offers a place for inspiration, debate, development, learning and challenge.
