Film: Loving Vincent

Sun 22 Jul | 4.30pm

The first ever painted film, Loving Vincent revisits the last days of van Gogh’s life, exploring the mysterious circumstances around his death. Each frame was painstakingly hand painted from live-action footage, to create this immersive, experimental animation. 65,000 frames were painted by 125 artists, who worked on the project for six years. Referencing over 100 of van Gogh’s paintings, the film brings his portrait subjects to life, shimmering and swirling, in a feature-length loving pastiche of the painter’s work.

Film: Maudie

Sat 28 Jul | 2.00pm

Based on the true story of Nova Scotian outsider artist Maud Lewis, whose appealingly naive paintings became a hit, celebrated in the press (during the 1970s, two paintings were ordered by the White House during Richard Nixon’s presidency). Canada’s most well-known folk artist is portrayed with warmth by Sally Hawkins. Opposite her, playing Maud’s husband Everett Lewis is a gruff, guttural Ethan Hawke.

Sat 28 Jul - Sun 29 Jul | 28 July, 4.30pm / 29 July, 2.00pm

Advanced Style explores the lives of seven unique New Yorkers, aged between 62 and 95, whose playful approach to personal style defies traditional expectations of beauty, fashion and aging. Director Lina Plioplyte took Ari Seth Cohen’s street style blog of the same name as a starting point for this delightful documentary and the result is a joyful explosion of colour and experimentation.
