Lov­ing Vin­cent

Some­times a film is praised for show­ing land­scapes that ‘look like some­thing out of a paint­ing’. Lov­ing Vin­cent goes one fur­ther: its de­pic­tions of late 19th-cen­tury France are ac­tual oil paint­ings. The film brings to life the world of Vin­cent van Gogh us­ing an­i­ma­tion in the artist’s Post-Im­pres­sion­ist paint­ing style. Each of the 65,000 frames was cre­ated by one of 125 pro­fes­sional artists from across the globe. Lov­ing Vin­cent was first shot in live ac­tion before be­ing hand-painted frame-by-frame to cre­ate an ex­tra­or­di­nary view­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Lov­ing Vin­cent’s UK pre­miere is at the BFI Lon­don Film Fes­ti­val (4–15 Oc­to­ber).
