Bruce Springsteen's Western Stars concert film featuring the songs from his new album will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, according to The concert film was shot by Springsteen's longtime film director and archivist Thom Zimny, best known for such Springsteen docs and concert films as Wings For Wheels: The Making Of Born To Run; The Promise: The Making Of Darkness On The Edge Of Town; The Ties That Bind; Springsteen On Broadway -- along with the critically acclaimed Elvis Presley: The Searcher.

The Festival runs between September 5th and 15th, with the 83-minute performance doc being described on the festival's official website: "The incomparable Bruce Springsteen performs his critically acclaimed latest album and muses on life, rock, and the American dream, in this intimate and personal concert film co-directed by Thom Zimny and Springsteen himself."

Earlier this month during a chat with the E Street Radio channel on Sirius XM, "The Boss" revealed, "We made a film of us playing the Western Stars album start to finish, plus some other things. I knew we weren't going to tour, so I figured this was the best way to do it. (The film) is looking good -- that will be exciting. It will be out in the calendar year."

Amazingly, 2019 marks the 35th anniversary of Bruce Springsteen's blockbuster Born In The U.S.A. album and tour. In the 1998 BBC documentary Springsteen: A Secret History, Springsteen reflected on coming into his own as a man in the midst of growing superstardom: "Y'know, I think that experiencing those choices is confining when you're young. 'Cause you want every thing, and you wanna have everything, and you see every gal, y'know, this one, that . . . You live in this fantasy of endless possibility -- and then if you have some real success, there is an enormous amount of real possibility, you can mistake endless choice for freedom. That's an easy mistake to make."
