What’s On in London: 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.

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.
