AFI-Discovery Channel's Silverdocs festival, in its tenth year, will open and close with music-themed documentaries. On June 18, Ramona Diaz's "Don't Stop Believin': Everyman's Journey" will open, and Emmett Malloy's "Big Easy Express" will close the Washington, DC event on June 23.

"Don't Stop Believin" tells the story of how the iconic band found their new lead singer, Filipino Arnel Pineda, via YouTube - an "inspiring rags-to-riches" story.

"Big Easy Express" celebrates the music of Mumford & Sons, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros and Old Crow Medicine Show during their journey from California to New Orleans via a six-stop train tour.

Silverdocs director Sky Sitney says the two "spirited" films "harness the passion and creativity of these musicians.” Trailers are below. Here's more on Silverdocs.
