UK Premiere of Loving Vincent announced

// News

we can announce that the UK Premiere of Loving Vincent will be broadcast live from the National Gallery on Monday 9th October as part of the 61st BFI London Film Festival. The event will be broadcast to cinemas across the UK and Ireland, and the film will be followed by a Q&A with special guests.

Tickets are now on sale at LovingVincent.Film – cinemas are still being confirmed so keep checking the site as new venues are added! Tickets for the live event at the National Gallery will go on sale to National Gallery and BFI members from 24th August and then to the public on 31st August.

Tricia Tuttle, Deputy Head of Festivals for the London Film Festival, says: “It’s a pleasure to be presenting Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman’s inventive, visually arresting film as part of the BFI London Film Festival, with the premiere screening broadcast live from the National Gallery to audiences around the UK. Loving Vincent encapsulates the troubling myths surrounding Vincent van Gogh’s death so elegantly – an absorbing story about a great artist, delivered through pain-staking, beautifully hand-painted frames in the style of the painter himself.”

Hugh Welchman, co-director of Loving Vincent, says: “The London Film Festival programmes great films, and The National Gallery has one of the great painting collections of the world, so we couldn’t be happier that they have partnered up to do a very special premiere for Loving Vincent.”

The 61st BFI London Film Festival in partnership with American Express® takes place from Wednesday 4 October-Sunday 15 October 2017. Loving Vincent will be released in the UK and Ireland by Altitude Film Distribution on 13 October.
