Price £8

Delve into the life of one of the worlds most famous artists, told by his paintings and by the characters that inhabit them.

Loving Vincent is a beautiful animation that explores the life and controversial death of Vincent Van Gogh. The intrigue unfolds through interviews with the characters closest to Vincent and through dramatic reconstructions of the events leading up to his death.

Painted with over 65,000 frames on over 1,000 canvases, the film was shot with actors, and literally painted over frame by frame in the artist's style. It took 4 years to develop the technique, and 2 years to complete the film with a team of over 100 painters.

In addition to Loving Vincent, there will be a short film by Martin Pickles - An Ode to Joy (2014)

An introduction to the work of Joy Batchelor, animator, director, and producer. Joy was one half of the Halas & Batchelor Cartoons Studio which made the UK's first animated feature film, Animal Farm, in 1954. Although a crucial figure in British animation, today she is almost unknown, something this film seeks to redress.
