Happy New Year and many thanks to those of you who wrote to us this past year inquiring about the status of our DVD release. It took most of 2008 to right our licensing issues, and now we’re simply waiting for Columbia Records to decide upon a new release date.
Please sign up for our DVD mailing list if you’d like for us to email you with the release date as soon as we’re notified.
Our apologies for the radio silence these past six months, but we’ve had our nose to the grindstone dealing with some unexpected licensing issues that postponed our worldwide DVD release this past May 2007. Music documentaries are a strange beast! We are now waiting for our new release date from Columbia Records. Please sign up for our DVD mailing list if you’d like us to contact you directly with the new DVD release date and availability. Thank you for your patience!
At long last, we’re thrilled to announce that Amazing Grace: Jeff Buckley will be released on DVD by Columbia/Legacy
on May 22, 2007 (TBA.) We’ll be posting more information about the release right here. Or, you can subscribe to our DVD mailing list and we’ll email you information about DVD availability.

We’re proud to announce that Amazing Grace: Jeff Buckley won two awards at the DIY Film Festival in Los Angeles last week – Best Documentary and Best Film! Waxing a little sentimental here, the DIY stamp of approval is especially meaningful. The indie spirit of Amazing Grace is a big part of its overall message – that Jeff inspires regular ole people (like us) to embark on their own creative odysseys.
The on-going loop of this film is that we were inspired by Jeff to make a film about WHY Jeff inspired us to make a film. Our passionate desire to create a film through which people could “catch” this inspiration is what carried us through the DIY process. Without inspiration there is no DIY. You simply can’t sustain.
That said, the DIY awards are a true testament to the inspirational reach of Jeff Buckley, and we’re particularly proud of it! Thank you very much to Rich Martini and the DIY judges.
We produced, directed and funded Amazing Grace: Jeff Buckley ourselves. It was a long haul, but in the end our film is a true testament to the DIY ethic. At least we think so! That’s why we’re proud to present our film at the sixth annual DIY Convention: Do It Yourself In Film, Music and Books this weekend in Los Angeles.
For those of you interested in attending the convention, Amazing Grace will screen as part of the DIY Film Festival on FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 10 at the Egyptian Theater. Our screening is part of a three-hour group screening between 7:30 and 10:30 p.m.
