Doc N’ Roll Film Festival has shared this year’s music documentary films online. The annual British film festival announced cancellations of screenings from March through May as a result of COVID-19.
Doc N’ Roll features a variety of films on an array of musical topics, created by independent filmmakers. Since 2014, the film festival has continued to spread throughout the U.K. with more screenings in more cities each year.

As the realities of COVID-19 and its effect on mass gatherings became more apparent, Doc N’ Roll organizers decided to put all of this year’s entries online. All 29 films, set to be shown at gatherings from March to July throughout the U.K., are now available to rent on demand through the festival’s website. This year’s entries cover a wide range of musical subjects, including Twisted Sister, Chuck Berry, photographer Jim Marshall, artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, Gil Scott-Heron, Al Green, Sun Ra, Lee “Scratch” Perry, and many more.
This move comes as events across the world figure out how to navigate mass gatherings in the age of COVID-19. SXSW announced last month that, in light of this year’s cancellation of the multi-media festival, that organizers would be uploading a selection of this year’s films to Amazon Prime. Over 30 original films, documentaries, and shorts are available to stream, for free, on Amazon Prime’s SXSW 2020 Film Festival Collection, from April 27th—May 6th.
All 29 films are available now through the Doc N’ Roll Festival website, and can be rented for just under five dollars (£3.99).
