The distributor will screen the music doc about Canadian rock band Rush on June 7.
Arts Alliance Media (AAM) is screening Tribeca winner Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage in the UK for just night on June 7.
The music documentary film looks at the rise of Canadian band Rush, who it is claimed are the world’s biggest cult band, and their influence on the global rock scene. It was directed by Banger Films’ Scot MaFadyen and Sam Dunn, the team behind last year’s Iron Maiden: Flight 666 and 2005’s Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey.
Rush features interviews with rock stars including Gene Simmons, Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor and Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan about their love of Rush and the influence they have had on their music.
AAM is showing the film in association with Classic Rock magazine, Universal Music Group and Banger Films.
Howard Kiedaisch, the chief executive of AAM, said: “Scot and Sam have created another entertaining, engaging, behind the scenes look at a much loved band.”
Rush had its premiere at Tribeca, where it picked up the Heineken Audience Award, last month and also screen at Toronto’s Hot Docs earlier this month.
