Amazing Grace is a 2018 concert  directed by Sydney Pollack and later realized by producer Alan Elliott. The film features Aretha Franklin recording her 1972 live album of the same name.

Amazing Grace was not released on schedule in 1972 due to difficulties syncing the audio tracks wieht the visual print and was relegated to a vault at Warner Bros until 2007  when producer Alan Elliott purchased the raw footage and attempted to sync it. The pared-down footage, now 87 minutes in length, was planned for a 2011 release. Franklin sued Elliott for appropriating her likeness without permission, however, and the release date passed. Elliott made another attempt to premiere the film in 2015 at the Telluride Film Festival, the Toronto International Film Festival, and the Chicago International Film Festival., but Franklin sued him again for unknown reasons. After Franklin's death in 2018, her family made an arrangement to release the film, which premiered at the Doc NYC in 2018,
