The National's tour movie, Mistaken For Strangers, is set to stage its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York on April 17.

The band will play live following the screening of the film, which was directed by Tom Berninger, brother of the band's frontman Matt Berninger.

Matt Berninger produced the film alongside Carin Besser and Craig Charland, and it will open up the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival, which runs until April 28.

"We’re really happy to premiere this movie at Tribeca, as New York has been home to us for these past 15 years," Matt Berninger said. "I was happy to give my brother whatever access he needed. I just didn’t expect this movie to include shower scenes."

Tom Berninger added: "When my brother asked me along on tour as a roadie, I thought I might as well bring a camera to film the experience. What started as a pretty modest tour documentary has, over the last two and a half years, grown into something much more personal, and hopefully more entertaining."

The National are to release a new album in May. The Brooklyn band unveiled the news on their Twitter account earlier this week, and have also announced a series of US tour dates and European festival shows taking place in June and July.
