Doc’n Roll Festival Kickstarter Campaign
We’ve been banging on about Doc ’n Roll Festival for the past few months, but incase you aren’t familiar with it, the festival is a first for London. Taking place at Hackney Picturehouse on 26th-28th September, the inaugural film festival is a DIY project devoted exclusively to exhibiting an eclectic mix of all kinds of music and film related happenings. As there is no other event in London like this, Doc’n Roll has seized the opportunity to bring together a community of like minded music and film fans in London for two days of compelling documentaries, live music, Q&As and much more.
The festival is a start up, completed self funded by the directors, who don’t want to compromise the programme for anyone. The ambitious task means they need to sell out the festival, in order to just break even. So by showing your support via their Kickstarter campaign, will mean you can be part of a first for London and the first of many Doc’n Roll Festivals.
