Rock This Town, 14 years of rock on the big screen.
The next edition of our festival will be in november 9th to november 14th. The 13thedition, that was supposed to allow the festival to gain momentum, stature…was paused because of the virus and forced to be postponed back in October 2020 for a reduced version and under close surveillance. A year later, the virus is still here, but Rock This Town as well! In anticipation this year, a selection of movies (mostly unseen) from around the world, that tell, in a certain way, other worlds, the world before. The story of pioneers of electric, a depiction of oversees musique called Maloya, striking jazz of Paul Motian, the Irish epic and torment of Shane Mac Gowan, the haunting profession of Don Letts (festival guest), the story of The Band, the discovery of Glenn Copeland, the beautiful and touching adventure of the Argentinian pianist Martin, and the radical nature of music noise, told by people today. And many other musical views, something to please music-lovers, curious old rockers, hipsters, and a high-level jury. As a jury, Thierry Villeneuve, director, will be with us (we released his beautiful portrayal of Daniel Darc, Pieces of My Life two years ago). Benoit Basirico, a journalist at the Septième Obsession and expert of music in film will also join us and Catherine Fontaine, a mediator at the contemporary art center of the Parvis national scene Tarbes-Pyrénées will also deliberate.
But also, movie concerts – Des Amis Imaginaires – Night of the Living Dead, ), concerts (TBA), a record fair (10thedition November 14that the Route du Son), conventions, meet and greet, exposes DJ sets…
We will tell you everything in due time!
