With a strong emphasis on Sheffield being a place that makes you feel at home, the short film showcases many of the Steel City’s attractions, facilities and innovations.

Focus stylishly flits through subjects such as the outdoors and city life, to culture and the arts, digital and technology innovations, world-class advanced manufacturing facilities, healthcare and more.

“It is fantastic to see such a diverse range of talent ‘under one roof’, – from arts and culture to sport and manufacturing – Sheffield really can do it all. This film brilliantly highlights what our city can offer to both our residents and the wider world.” Councillor Paul Turpin, Executive Member for Inclusive Economy, Jobs and Skills

A Promotional Video, Made in Sheffield

Keeping a uniquely Sheffield flavour the This Is Sheffield promotional video is complete with a soundtrack from hugely successful Steel City band 65daysofstatic.

Additionally, upcoming Amazon Prime movie Everybody’s Talking About Jamie — filmed in Sheffield and directed by local film-maker Jonathan Butterell for the city’s Warp Films production company — gets featured.

There is a wealth of Steel City culture throughout the incredible Sheffield video.

“It’s impossible to fit everything Sheffield has to offer into one short video, but this film captures the spirit of what our city is really about.  It shows that we are a vibrant, cultured, energetic city and I hope it helps to put Sheffield on the map as a welcoming place for all with something for everyone to enjoy.” Councillor Julie Grocutt, Deputy Leader and Executive Member for Community Engagement and Governance

    Lovely job. I’ve been here less than 3 months and am a total and utter convert to the city. What a fantastic place and what great welcoming people.

    Born and bred a “Dee-Dah” I have seen the city evolve over the past 65 years from a mucky hole living down Attercliffe to see it now. I’m very proud of my roots and it’s good to see others from far and wide enjoying the benefits of living in Sheffield. Long may it last. Thank you for the video’s. Excellent . . . Kevin
