Doc’N Roll, the annual UK festival dedicated to showcasing music documentaries from across the world, will take place in Bristol for the first time this year.
With the six-day programme set for 27th June until 1st July, the festival will be hosted by Rough Trade and Watershed Cinema collaboratively and will see UK premieres of two new films plus seven other meticulously curated choices. The festival will also present unique Q&As with some of the directors and artists showcased.
If you are an avid fan of The Wedding Present, then Something Left Behind will be for you. It’s a special behind-the-scenes look at the making of the band’s classic 1987 record George Best, and will be showing at Watershed on 30th June.
Also making it’s UK debut will be Slave To The Grind, an in-depth dissection into one of the most intense of genres, Grindcore. For those of a certain disposition, it will be showing at Rough Trade on the 29th June.
