Music documentary festival Doc’n Roll is back for its 10th year this autumn

For the past decade, Doc’n Roll Film Festival has been celebrating outstanding filmmaking in the music documentary genre and now it’s marking its 10th birthday with yet another stellar lineup of movies. Across October and November, the festival will see screenings of docs that cover seminal artists such as TLC, Cyndi Lauper, Nicky Hopkins, The Zombies, Max Roach and The Elephant 6 Recording Co, appear at some of the city’s best-loved indie cinemas.

This year’s edition is packed with 25 premiere feature films, with highlights including a screening of the first-ever authorised film about Nick Cave’s band, The Birthday Party; Aaron Trinder’s doc about the Free Party Movement and the infamous Castlemorton free festival in 1992 (the largest ever illegal rave); Rock Chicks, a reflective, rebellious story of women rockers such as Kirstin Hersh and Suzi Quatro.

Speaking about reaching this 10-year milestone, Vanessa Lobon Garcia, director and co-founder of Doc’n Roll Film Fest, says: “What began as a boutique East London music discovery film festival back in 2014 and has grown to a UK-wide celebration of offbeat subcultures across 10 cities. Our festival has become a platform for diverse, outlier and independent voices, reflecting our ethos and the essence of music’s profound impact on people’s lives.”
