What’s On in London: Doc’n Roll Film Festival

Doc'n Roll Film Festival

The inaugural edition of the Doc‘n Roll film festival is taking place at the Hackney Picturehouse, on 26th-28th September. Doc n’Roll is the latest film festival to join the likes of the BFI London Film Festival, Sundance London, the East End Film Festival and many more. The only difference between the current crop of film festivals in the capital is that Doc ‘nRoll will be specialising in a feast of international music documentaries. The Doc’nRoll Film Festival will be announcing the full programme very soon, so far they’ve given very little away, with only a couple film hints for the full weekend schedule. We’ve discovered they aim to screen ‘Teenage’, a historical documentary of the origins of youth culture, constructed from archival footage.  The documentary charts the development of a social strata from which all of wester popular music has sprung.

Watch the official trailer of Teenage below.

 

They also plan to screen the documentary on the intriguing Harry Dean Stanton, featuring the great David Lynch as interviewer.

Doc’nRoll will be creating the full film festival experience with Q&A’s with actors and directors and gigs to accompany the screenings.

Hackney Picturehouse

The Picturehouse cinemas are the best independent cinemas in the UK, and the Hackney cinema will be the perfect host with it’s light, vibrant four screens in a beautiful reconditioned building in the heart of Hackney. Since the Picturehouse took over music venue Hackney Ocean in 2011 it has received support from Local Hackney resident, and award-winning actor, Michael Fassbender. That’s all the details we can reveal at the moment but stay tuned for the full programme to be announced very soon. Like Doc'n Roll Festival  Follow Doc'n Roll Festival
