Watch: First Few Moments Of New Elliott Smith Film

As 'Heaven Adores You' approaches commercial release...

Taken far too soon, the tragic death of Elliott Smith robbed the world of a wonderful talent.

In 2011, high school friend Kevin Moyer opened a Kickstarter fund for a new documentary on the songwriter's life and work.

Now completed, 'Heaven Adores You' received its premiere at the San Francisco International Film Festival last month.

Now, as NME point out, the first few minutes of the film have made their way online.

Featuring a 1998 interview with Elliott Smith discussing his remarkable appearance at the Oscars, you can watch it below.
