Still from the movie

One of the three films being made about Jeff Buckley, Greetings from Tim Buckley, is finally in the can, and premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this week. The movie, filmed mostly in Brooklyn Heights, chronicles "the days leading up to Tim Buckley's performance at his father's tribute concert in 1991." Though director Daniel Algrant told Rolling Stone, "The concert is true—the rest is fictionalized and conjecture. I really tried to be as emotionally honest as I could be, as opposed to having to worry about truth."

At the film festival, the cast and people behind the film did a Q&A, which you can watch some of below. While we've seen Penn Badgley's musical imitation of the late legendary musician (he's been popping up and doing gigs in Brooklyn and the LES), he talked about what he honed in on while portraying Jeff Buckley on screen otherwise, saying it was about "evoking the gentle sweetness... the beautiful and magical qualities of him." He added in an interview with Rolling Stone, "Trust me, it was super-ballsy thing to think I could do it, but I could. With Jeff, I can't do everything he could do, but this specific slice of him, I can do that."

Also, as you'll hear below, he didn't know Tim Buckley until now: "I loved Jeff's music for a long time, and Tim, Tim I really never heard of. Now I love Tim's music."

The movie is set to come out sometime this year, but an official release date hasn't been announced.
