While the big doc news from this week’s TIFF press conference was of Davis Guggenheim’s U2 film kicking off the 2011 festival, it was worth noting that the Toronto event will also premiere Cameron Crowe’s forthcoming music doc Pearl Jam Twenty.

The film chronicles the years leading up to the band’s formation, the chaos that ensued after being catapulted into super-stardom, and their eventual move away from the spotlight.

“We put so much into the film,” said Crowe in a statement, “moments, pieces of footage shot by band members, audio snippets, visual bursts, new and old interviews… many different formats, all meant to show the emotional scrapbook of what it felt like to be a member of the band on this 20-year journey.

“The richness of the footage made our path very clear – just tell the story of the band and let the music guide us. It was a joy to make this film, and we’re thrilled to share it with the fans.”
