Doc’n Roll Film Festival 2022

Doc’n Roll Film Festival returns to big screens nationwide this autumn, offering a truly UK-wide programme of music documentaries.

A programme of musical discovery highlighting major artists and unsung heroes, cult icons and underground subcultures, Doc’n Roll puts a dazzling range of rhythms, musicians and music scenes in the spotlight, and showcases stories from the worlds of electronic, folk and punk to the landscapes of soul, psychedelia and jazz.

The theme of change is at the heart of this year’s lineup, from the personal impact of health conditions to the positive influence of creative communities as they respond to social and political change, and music’s ability to inspire and empower in the fight against injustice. This year's programme aims, say Doc’n Roll’s founders, to help us navigate a world full of constant upheaval and change.
