Directed by James Marcus Haney, the movie "Austin to Boston," has been released and screened live for the first time in the Cinema Tent at Bonnaroo.

Haney is known for his film "No Cameras Allowed," a documentary of Haney sneaking into music festivals around the world.

During that documentary Haney impresses the guys of Mumford & Sons with his tricks and build a friendship from there.

Haney was later asked to come along with Mumford to film "Big Easy Express." A film that featured Mumford and Sons, Old Crow Medicine Show and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, as they toured through six cities on one train.

"Austin to Boston," follows a similar premise.

Produced by Mumford's Ben Lovett and narrated by Gill Landry, Old Crow Medicine Show, the film is of Ben Howard, The Staves, Nathaniel Rateliff, Bear's Den and their drivers as they travel and play shows from Austin to Boston in 5 old VW campers over two weeks.

The film is a mixture of funny antics the bands get up to keep themselves entertained, a few breakdowns as the weather and space become to much, and full of good music.

Lovett, Haney, and Ty Johnson, another producer of the film, came out to answer questions. There's not much to share about the session as most of the questions were like "Will you sing a song?" To which Lovett tried to politely decline by saying if you lead it.

Poor boy didn't get the hint and marched himself up to the front and started singing...alone. The film itself is up on Netflix and also is available on iTunes.
