Doc n’Roll Film Festivals return this week

After cancelling last year, the national festival of music documentaries returns for the eighth Doc n’ Roll. The programme includes 34 feature-length music documentaries plus eight shorts, screening in 11 cities across the United Kingdom and now online wherever you are.

The films are in four strands: Sisters, brothers, global visions, and DIY, which gives scope to a diverse range of artists, their backgrounds and identities across the world. Films screening include ‘Guy Clark: Without Getting Killed or Caught’, a 95-minute documentary follows Guy Clark, Susanna Clark, and Townes Van Zandt as they rise from obscurity to reverence; ‘Karen Dalton: In My Time’, ‘Love in Bright Lights: David McComb of the Triffids’, ‘A Leftover Feeling: A Studio B Revival’, and ‘Buena Vista Social Club’. The festival will also present a jury award for Documentary of the Year. On the shortlist for this is Damien Dempsey’s ‘Love Yourself Today’.
