The Independent Film Channel's (IFC) third-annual "Indie Rocks" film festival will kick off Nov. 24 with a showing of "Sid & Nancy," the 1986 feature film about the tumultuous relationship between the Sex Pistols' Sid Vicious and his girlfriend Nancy Spungen.

Through Dec. 1, the cable network will present 11 more independent films with what it calls "stellar soundtracks," including "Year Of The Horse" (Dec. 1), director Jim Jarmusch's documentary about Neil Young's 1996 tour with Crazy Horse; the Who's "Tommy" (Nov. 29); and director Kevin Smith's critically-lauded 1994 debut, "Clerks" (Nov. 27).

Other films featured will be "Welcome To The Dollhouse" (Nov. 24), "Girl 6" (Nov. 25, 29), "Lost Highway" (Nov. 25), "The Last Temptation Of Christ" (Nov. 26), "Stranger Than Paradise" (Nov. 26), "All Over Me" (Nov. 28), "Faraway, So Close!" (Nov. 30), and "Mystery Train" (Dec. 1).

The "Indie Rocks" film festival will be hosted by actor/musician Keanu Reeves, and will feature live footage of his band Dogstar captured earlier this year by IFC.
