LONDON PREMIERE + DIRECTOR Q&A 

Screening co-presented by the London Jazz Festival

Jim Galloway - A Journey in Jazz chronicles the amazing Scotsman who adopted Canada as a young man and then carved out an international career as saxophonist and jazz impresario. Like Charlie Parker, he played with the great Jay McShann. He played with the awesome Count Basie veteran Buddy Tate. He co-founded the Toronto Jazz Festival and was its artistic director for decades. He was also an accomplished broadcaster and print journalist. He became Canada’s jazz ambassador furthering the international reach of jazz, America’s greatest gift to the world.

Doc’n Roll Film Festival is supported by the BFI using funds from the National Lottery to grow audience appetite and enjoyment for a wide range of independent British and international films.
