Following a huge couple of years for the band, Wolf Alice are to feature in a new film from acclaimed British director Michael Winterbottom. On the Road was filmed while the Grammy-nominees were on tour earlier this year, taking in every corner of the UK and Ireland.

BAFTA-winning filmmaker Michael Winterbottom joined the band on the road, capturing sixteen different gigs and daily life backstage. Winterbottom’s resulting tour film - which records the tour from the point of view of a new member of their crew - is a refreshingly unusual one with unexpected twists; it reveals the relentless, sometimes unglamorous graft of playing live, night after night. But the film also mesmerises, offering a structure that reveals more, at every stop on the road.

The film will premiere at the 60th BFI London Film Festival in partnership with American Express® within the Festival's Sonic Strand on Sunday, 9 October at BFI Southbank.

Directed by Michael Winterbottom (24 Hour Party People, The Trip), produced by Melissa Parmenter and Anthony Wilcox (The Face of An Angel, The Trip) at Revolution Films, with Julian Bird and Abi Gadsby as executive producers; with Wolf Alice, James McArdle, Leah Harvey, Swim Deep, Bloody Knees. The film is financed by Julian Bird’s Lorton Entertainment and will be released in the UK in 2017 by Lorton Distribution.

The 60th BFI London Film Festival in partnership with American Express takes place from Wednesday 5 October-Sunday 16 October 2016. Full programme information at www.bfi.org.uk/lff
