Last year, a number of legendary rockers assembled at New York City's Madison Square Garden on December 12 for a massive benefit concert to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy. Now, a concert film that documents the event, titled 12.12.12 , will see its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival , which takes place September 5-15.

The film will be shown on September 8 at the Winter Garden Theatre at 8 p.m., and is expected to include live performances from Coldplay ’s Chris Martin , R.E.M. ’s Michael Stipe , ex- Pink Floyd mastermind Roger Waters , Pearl Jam ’s Eddie Vedder , and Nirvana ’s Dave Grohl , Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear performing with Beatles legend Paul McCartney . It will also feature sets by veteran rockers Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band , The Rolling Stones , The Who , Jon Bon Jovi , Eric Clapton and Billy Joel .

A discussion with the co-organizer of the benefit concert, movie mogul Harvey Weinstein , will take place following the screening.
