Doc'n Roll began life in 2013 as the UK's Music Documentary Film Festival.

In 2016 we branched out to a sales, distribution and consulting service.

We excel in finding both theatrical and non-theatrical routes to market for underground music docs across the UK & Europe.

And in 2019 we launched Doc'n Roll TV our on-demand streaming platform, another UK first!

We celebrate music subcultures by providing a unique platform to support the wealth of creative, compelling and unforgettable documentaries that celebrate the performers, labels, scenes and stories.

We are passionate about independent film and music across all genres, and 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, convinced it was time to show some love to the under-the-radar music docs that all too often were being ignored by risk-averse film programmers. 



Our headline, BFI-supported annual autumn festival will run across London from 30 October to 15 November 2020, in addition to year-round LDN encore screenings.

Our London festival is followed by our BFI-supported regional city festivals that bring the best of the London fest to some of our favourite music-loving cities around the UK.

Between March - July 2020, we'll be in Liverpool / Brighton / Glasgow Edinburgh / Dundee / Nottingham / Newcastle / Hull / Sheffield / Manchester / Bristol / Exeter / Derby!
