Classical music, iconic musicians, unforgettable new documentaries, all at a classic Edinburgh movie house: The Cameo, one of Scotland's oldest cinemas, will host Doc'n Roll Scotland's debut Edinburgh edition from 25 to 28 April 2019.
Six critically acclaimed films about music - from jazz, soul, gospel and early rock'n'roll to pioneering punk women, hip hop-meets-classical mischief and some crate-digging soundtrack treasures - will grace The Cameo's silver screens. Read more about the Doc'n Roll Edinburgh lineup here.
Scotland's first full-length opportunity to experience Doc'n Roll, the UK's music documentary festival, comes courtesy of Fife-born director Morven Masterton. She joined Doc'n Roll's London team back in 2014, and since then, she says, she's been "desperate to bring the festival back home to Scotland. We’ve had a lot of local support to help make it happen, and we’ve programmed a fantastic mix of films for Edinburgh."
Doc'n Roll Scotland won't stop at Edinburgh: Masterton says plans are currently being finalised for a Glasgow weekender in late June, and the aim is to tour the festival across the country as well.
Doc’n Roll is supported by the BFI Audience Fund using money from the National Lottery to grow audience appetite and enjoyment for a wide range of independent British and international films.
