A new documentary about Foo Fighters is to premiere at the South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas this March.

Directed by Oscar and Emmy-winner James Moll, the feature-length film traces the band's 16-year history and gives an insight into the recording of their latest album, which is set to be released on April 11.

Dave Grohl, who is set to be crowned Godlike Genius at the Shockwaves NME Awards later this month, said that he gave Moll "mountains of never seen before footage" to go through for the as-yet-untitled movie.

"For me, it's like watching my life flash in front of my eyes," Grohl said. "Except with a mouth full of popcorn and Hot Tamales. Hope you dig it. It's been a wild 16 years... here's to 16 more."

See Sxsw.com for details about the festival, which takes place on March 11-19. The film is expected to be released later in the year.

For a new interview with the frontman talking about Foo Fighters' new album, get the new NME Icons: Dave Grohl magazine, out on Friday (February 4).

Foo Fighters are set to headline the NME Awards Big Gig on February 25 at Wembley Arena, two days after the Shockwaves NME Awards ceremony in London.
