Jimi Hendrix Biopic Premiere At Toronto Film Festival Confirmed

The upcoming Jimi Hendrix biopic, All By My Side, is set to have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) in September.

The film stars OutKast's Andre 3000 as the legendary guitarist, and the first photo of Andre has been released in conjunction with the premiere announcement.

The film centers on Hendrix's time in London from 1966-7, when Animals bassist Chas Chandler invited Hendrix to London to play a series of club shows, leading to the rocker recording his first album, Are You Experienced?

The making of the film drew controversy when the producers were unable to secure rights to use Hendrix's recordings from the Hendrix family and estate.

John Ridley directs the film, which co-stars Ashley Charles as Keith Richards, Imogen Poots as Linda Keith, and Hayley Atwell as Hendrix's girlfriend Kathy Etchingham.

TIFF runs from September 5 to 15.
