Doc'n Roll is the UK's Music Documentary Film Festival.

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 autumn festival runs across London each November 1-18. It's followed by a BFI-supported touring programme that brings the best of the fest to some of our favourite music-loving cities around the UK.

In 2019, we'll be in:

Liverpool, 28 - 31 March 

Brighton, 3 - 7 April

Hull, 25 - 28 April 

Nottingham, 10-18 May 

Edinburgh, 16 - 19 May 

Manchester, 29 May - 2 June

Bristol, 12 - 16 June
