Jimi Hendrix was an American guitarist and singer-songwriter whose career spanned from 1962 to 1970.[2] His videography includes commercially released films of musical performances and documentaries about his career. Hendrix appeared in two popular 1960s music festival films – Monterey Pop (1968)[3] and Woodstock (1970).[4] A short documentary, Experience (1968), also known as See My Music Talking, was also screened.[5][6]

At the time of his death, two concert films were in development. Jimi Plays Berkeley (1971) was the first film featuring Hendrix to be issued posthumously.[7] A second, tentatively titled The Last Experience, was filmed of the Jimi Hendrix Experience's last British concert.[8] However, legal difficulties have prevented its release.[8] Additionally, a theatrical film, with incidental music and 17 minutes of Hendrix's performing, was released as Rainbow Bridge (1971).[9] In 1973, the first attempt at a biographical documentary film, titled Jimi Hendrix was released.[9]

Over the years, many concert films and documentaries have been forthcoming. In addition to full-length performances at Monterey and Woodstock, Hendrix's 1970 concerts at the Isle of Wight and the Atlanta International Pop Festivals have been released on video.[10] DVD releases of several of these and the earlier films have been certified as "Gold" and "Platinum" in several countries.[11][12][13] The 2013 documentary Hear My Train A Comin' received an Emmy Award in 2014.[14]
