Lights, camera, music! This is the year Doc’n Roll lands in Scotland for its debut festival editions in three cities.
During April, we brought six critically heralded films about music and the unforgettable stories of those who made it to the Cameo in Edinburgh and Dundee for a brief stint at Dundee Contemporary Arts.
Heading to Glasgow, we'll be packing ten events into the long weekend from 27 to 30 June, and celebrating sounds ranging from house music to jazz and mantra to metal. Screenings will be held in the wonderful Centre for Contemporary Arts and the Glasgow Film Theatre, and there'll be a host of directors' Q&As, DJ sets and live music to add interaction and extra excitement to Doc'n Roll's inaugural Glasgow festival of music on film.
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.
