Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore is releasing his next major film, "Where to Invade Next," this time taking aim at the U.S. government's constant state of "infinite war."

The Toronto International Film Festival announced Tuesday that it would be hosting the world premiere of "Where to Invade Next" as part of its lineup in September.

Details about the project were revealed by Moore in his first Periscope video he did on Tuesday. The video was also posted on his Twitter account.

"I've been very quiet about the making of this film," the Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker said. "We've been very diligent about keeping this under cover, and so now the secret is out — I've got a new movie. We're really excited about having its premiere in Toronto."

Moore told his Twitter followers to ask him any questions about the film, but explained that, "We're not saying a whole lot about the film right now for all the obvious reasons," adding that he'd "like to say 'Hello!' to all my NSA friends that are watching."

"The issue of the United States at infinite war is something that has concerned me for quite some time and provides the necessary satire of this film," he said on Periscope.

Moore contends that in the "post-9/11" world, there is a "constant need, it seems, to always have to have an enemy. 'Where's the next enemy?'"

"So we can keep our whole military industrial complex alive, keep a lot of the companies that make a lot of money from this in business," he answered.

"Where to Invade Next" is based on an idea that's "been percolating for a very long time," Moore said, adding that as a film that covers three continents that "it's a film of epic nature."

The Toronto Film Festival includes a blurb on its website, saying that Moore is returning "with what may be his most provocative hilarious film yet: Moore tells the Pentagon to 'stand down' — he will do the invading for American from now on."
