Previously, the doc was a special event selection at this year's Toronto International Film Festival. Shawn’s charitable foundation, the Shawn Mendes Foundation, recently partnered with TIFF to launch the SMF Changemaker Award, given to a TIFF film each year that is focused on social change.
The doc is directed by veteran music video director Grant Singer (The Weeknd, Lorde, Sam Smith), and marks the second documentary about Shawn in the past couple years. In 2018, Shawn joined forces with filmmaker and popular YouTuber Casey Neistat to create a doc that shone a spotlight on Shawn’s rise to fame from Toronto high-schooler to global superstar.If you’re hoping that there are some cute scenes in the doc between Shawn and gf Camila Cabello, then great minds think alike, because we love them together and hope to see more![video_embed id='2049925']BEFORE YOU GO: 'Horse girl' from Alberta can gallop and jump just like a horse[/video_embed]
