  • Music & Film - Out of Competition

    This section include "Music & Film" films that could not be featured "In Competition", due to the Official rules. Also, this section includes anniversary musical documentaries, concert or fiction films.

  • Joe Cocker: Mad Dog With Soul

    John Edgington manages to neatly fit the fifty year career of one of the most important white British soul and blues singers in his documentary. The film follows Joe Cocker's early days as a musician in Sheffield pubs in the 60s all the way to the solidification of his musical status in a career full of drama and adventure which become apparent in his raspy voice.

  • Nico, 1988

    Forget about the fair Nico, singer of the Velvet Underground and muse to Andy Warhol. By 1987 she had already wrecked her legend, dyed her hair black and given into her addictions, touring in vain. A study of self-destruction, in an impressively authentic biography about the end of idols, starring Trine Dyrholm the award-winning actress from “The Celebration”.

  • Whitney: Can I Be Me

    Five years after the shocking death of this pop diva, the provocative documentary maker Nick Broomfield sheds light on the hidden aspects of a turbulent life and career. What is revealed behind the diva facade is a soul tormented by drug abuse and low self-esteem. Because deep down, the staccato sounds of “I Will Always Love You” and the careless and inviting “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” were a front for a girl who, just for a moment, wanted to be herself.
