Indie folk outfit The Lumineers have revealed that they’re going to premiere their new film III at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).
Directed by Kevin Phillips, III is a visual representation of the accompanying album of the same name. The forthcoming Portland-shot flick follows a working-class American family, and stars Anna Cordell, Nick Stahl, and Charlie Tahan.
“This short film is about a member of my family whose battle with addiction has led her to rehab, jail, and ultimately homeless now, for over a year,” frontman Wesley Shultz explains in a statement. “We were attempting to make a short film with the album serving as our narrator. I never dreamed it would be premiered at one of the top international film festivals in the world.”
Watch the trailer for III below.
III is set to screen on September 8th at 3:00 p.m. at TIFF Bell Lightbox, where The Lumineers will perform after the screening and a Q&A session.
