“This year we are delighted to return to London, bigger and better, for our 5th edition of the festival, featuring a host of fascinating premiere music documentaries, Q&As with directors and their accomplices, live performances and more!”



We are seeking compelling music films from all genres, to support, distribute and exhibit across the UK & Ireland. We also have great contacts across US and European music film fests, who can assist with your film's reach. 

Get in touch!

The UK's Music Doc Film Festival

Celebrating music subcultures, by providing a unique platform to support their cinematic expressions!

Passionate about independent film and music across all genres, we provide our audience with the opportunity to watch these films as they were designed to be watched - LOUD. We launched Doc'n Roll Film Fest in 2014, to finally show some love to under the radar music docs being largely ignored by risk averse film programmers. 

Keep an eye on our updates: The Doc'n Roll Tour is coming to a town near you soon!


Headline BFI supported autumn festival across London each November 1-18, followed by a best-of-the-fest BFI supported regional cities touring programme of films, including 

Brighton 18-28 January, Liverpool 28 March - 1 April, Hull 2-6 May, Manchester 23-28 May, Bristol 27 June - 1 July, and Nottingham 12-16 September
