"Anvil! The Story of Anvil", a mockumentary-like true account of fiftysomething Canadian heavy-metal practitioners Steve "Lips" Kudlow (vocals, guitar) and Robb Reiner (drums) who, after a desultory European tour with their band ANVIL, decide to record a 13th album in a final attempt to fulfill their boyhead dreams of stardom, made its debut in the Premieres section of the 2008 Sundance Film Festival, which ran January 17-27, 2008, in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden, and Sundance, Utah.

Regarding the documentary footage, Lips told Total Rock in April 2006, "There's been some moments I wished that [the cameras] weren't there. I even had to say, 'You've gotta shut the thing off right now because I'm gonna lose my temper and I don't think that needs to be on film.' [Laughs] [It's very easy to forget that the cameras are there] and you could say things that you really shouldn't say."
"Anvil! The Story of Anvil" director Sacha Gervasi, who worked as writer on the Steven Spielberg-directed movie "The Terminal" (2004), is an old friend of the band's that used to do some roadie work for them back in the 1980s. He has filmed some of their shows from their November 2005 and June 2006 European tours. He also filmed Lips' 50th birthday show at Heads or Tails in Etobicoke, Ontario, Canada on February 25, 2006. As well, he filmed some of the recording of "This Is Thirteen". Sacha also interviewed many people from ANVIL's past and present, including former bandmembers.
