Jay Z just keeps winning. Ground-breaking Samsung deal, number one platinum-selling album, hottest wife on the planet etc. His latest achievement? Conquering world cinema. Award-winning director Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind and Apollo 13 among many others) filmed a documentary about Hov’s Made In America Festival last year and it’s set to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, which runs September 8 to 18.

The movie apparently shows the event through Jay Z’s eyes, so expect to see dollar signs on the screen. Artists on this year’s Made In America bill include Beyoncé, Nine Inch Nails, Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Phoenix, Miguel, Queens of the Stone Age, A$AP Rocky, AlunaGeorge, Haim and Wiz Khalifa. Watch a preview of the Philadelphia-based music festival after the jump.
