    Rush is one of rock's most influential bands, ranking third for most consecutive gold or platinum studio albums after The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. But despite having legions of devoted fans and being revered by generations of musicians, they have been ignored by critics and continually overlooked by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Featuring never-before-seen archival footage and interviews with some of today's most respected rock artists, Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage explores the forty-year career and phenomenon behind what could be the world's biggest cult band.

    In GLOBAL METAL, directors Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn set out to discover how the West's most maligned genre - heavy metal - has impacted the world's cultures beyond Europe and North America. The film follows metal fan and anthropologist Sam Dunn on a whirlwind journey through Asia, South America and the Middle East as he explores the underbelly of the world's emerging extreme music scenes: from Indonesian death metal to Chinese black metal to Iranian thrash metal. GLOBAL METAL revels a worldwide community of metalheads who aren't just absorbing metal from the West - they're transforming it - creating a new form of cultural expression in societies dominated by conflict, corruption and mass-consumerism.

  5. Super Duper Alice Cooper is the twisted tale of a teenage Dr Jekyll whose rock n roll Mr. Hyde almost kills him. It is the story of Vincent Furnier, preacher’s son, who struck fear into the hearts of parents as Alice Cooper, the ultimate rock star of the bizarre. From the advent of Alice as front man for a group of Phoenix freaks in the 60s to the hazy decadence of celebrity in the 70s to his triumphant comeback as 80s glam metal godfather, we will watch as Alice and Vincent battle for each others' souls. The film is the first ever "doc opera". A dizzying blend of documentary archive footage, animation and rock opera that will cement forever the legend of Alice Cooper.
