Rokumentti Rock Film Festival 4.-8.11.2020
Rokumentti 2019 Aftermovie
Thank you to all of you Rokumentti people!
Once again, Rokumentti delivers: the festival included deep conversations about sexuality and childhood trauma, medium-brewed-beer-country, comments from the directors and a wild granny disco.
If there’s one thing we wish everyone would carry from this Rokumentti to their everyday lives, it’s the thing connecting all of the conversations: openness. Let’s be open with each other and our children and we will make this world a little bit better a place to live in.
A huge Rokumentti-love-bubble thank you to all of you who participated, contributed, enabled and/or visited the festival. Rokumentti number fifteen is over, but not to worry, the festival number sixteen will take place in November 2020. Until then, goodbye!

Rage – announcing the theme programme for Rokumentti Festival!
Whoopee! The fifteenth Rokumentti Rock Film Festival is held in November, and the theme this year is called Rage.
Rage takes many forms: social media rage, road rage, and so on. It seems that raging is, well, all the rage at the moment, and the channels for expressing aggression are also more diverse than ever. Justified rage has been a positive force when fighting injustice in society, but in the wrong hands rage can become a frightening weapon.
The theme programme explores the many aspects of rage. Check out the theme programme here. The full programme will be published in October. Tickets for screenings will be on sale on Monday, October 28.
Theme documentary films:
Omar Shargawi: Western Arabs
Reetta Huhtanen: Aatos ja Amine
Robert Bahar, Almudena Carracedo: The Silence of Others
Penny Lane: Hail Satan?
Judith Helfand: Cooked: Survival by Zip Code
Alison Klayman: The Brink
The theme of Rokumentti is Rage!
The theme and new look of Rokumentti have been unveiled! This year’s festival focuses on the concept of Rage.
Rage comes in many forms: social media rage, road rage etc. It seems that raging is, well, all the rage at the moment, and the channels for expressing aggression are also more diverse than ever. Justified rage has been a positive force when fighting injustice in society, but in the wrong hands rage can become a frightening weapon. Rokumentti explores the many aspects of rage and invites you to Rage with a capital R!
The rest of the Rokumentti programme will be published in October. Like before, we’ll screen the best music films and a bunch of the most expected festival spectacles of the year.
