Each year, Doc'n Roll invites an all-star group of music and film lovers to help cap off our London event by awarding the Doc'n Roll Jury Prize for Documentary of the Year. Doc'n Roll's 2019 jury was graced by five of our favourite music and music documentary fans: Emma Dabiri (broadcaster and writer), Jen Long (Take Care Management), Julia Nottingham (Director at Dorothy St Pictures), Paul Rodgers (Head of BBC 6 Music) and Sophie K (presenter, Kerrang! Radio).
UPDATE: On Sunday 17 November, the closing day of Doc'n Roll London 2019, Doc'n Roll programmers Colm Forde and Vanessa Lobon announced the jury's decision. The 2019 Doc'n Roll Jury Prize for Documentary of the Year was awarded to directors Farah X and Lisa Cortes for their film The Remix: Hip Hop x Fashion, which received its UK premiere on the closing day of the festival.
Jury member Jen Long called The Remix "a brilliant film. It's an engaging, thought-provoking, educating, riveting ride that's put together perfectly. I enjoyed every minute." Sophie K added: "This film was head and shoulders above the rest. The director prioritised narrative above all else, which meant that you are gripped from start to finish. I didn’t even know I was interested in hip hop fashion! It was fantastically put together, and was able to appeal to a wide variety of audiences."
