From balcony concerts to virtual raves, music has helped people remain connected all over the world during the COVID-19 pandemic. Film has a unique power to embody the immediacy, intensity and sense of community that makes music so special, and with the experience of live gigs still missing from our lives, we present a season of films exploring music and its ability to move, connect and elicit change.
Featuring rappers on the streets of Mumbai, Scottish best friends desperate to attend a rave, the history and impact of Afro-Andalusian culture on Flamenco, UK battle rappers, the other fab-four from Liverpool, strong female artists forging careers against the odds, and David Byrne in that suit – we have something for every musical taste, plus Q&As, a DJ set and talks organised with local partners and arts organisations.
This season is part of Film Feels: Connected, a UK-wide cinema season, supported by the National Lottery and BFI Film Audience Network. Explore all films and events at filmfeels.co.uk
