A new exclusive scene from “Loving Vincent” was released by Yahoo, featuring Saoirse and Douglas Booth.

The first fully oil-painted animated film, Loving Vincent investigates the mystery surrounding the death of celebrated artist Vincent van Gogh. Ronan plays Marguerite Gachet, a physician’s daughter and star of two of van Gogh’s most famous portraits. While piecing together van Gogh’s final days, Armand Roulin (Douglas Booth) visits Marguerite for her impressions of the post-impressionist painter. Directors Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman filmed Ronan performing this scene and then turned the live-action footage over to a team of animators, who used it as visual reference for their emulation of van Gogh’s own painting style.

The good news just keep coming! The film Loving Vincent has been added to the line-up of this year’s VIEW Conference (which takes place in Turin, Italy) and Telluride Film Festival. The Telluride news was shared on the film’s official website, while Variety reported the Italian premiere.

We are thrilled to finally be able to share the news that we’ve been keeping secret for months…. The Telluride Film Festival, an event highly regarded amonst cinephiles, has today announced their program selections for their 44th edition and the fantastic news is that the US premiere of Loving Vincent will take place at the festival!

A talk about creating “Loving Vincent,” the hand-painted animated film about the life and mysterious death of artist Vincent Van Gogh has been added to the lineup for the 2017 edition of the VIEW Conference in Turin, Italy.

Investor Steve Muench and “Loving Vincent” painters/animators Biserka Petrovic and Adam Maciejewski will discuss how a team of 120 oil painters came together to re-create Van Gogh’s paintings to create the 90-minute film, written and directed by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman.

More than 100 of Van Gogh’s paintings were re-imagined for “Loving Vincent,” which was the Audience Prize winner at June’s Annecy animation film festival.

The film stars Douglas Booth, Robert Gulaczyk, Chris O’Dowd and Saoirse Ronan, whose live-action performances have been painted over in oil in the style of the troubled artist.

“Loving Vincent” opens in the U.S. next month in New York and Los Angeles, and later in the year in various other cities.

The VIEW Conference, which focuses the latest techniques and technologies for VFX, games, VR and animation, will be held Oct. 23-27 in Turin, Italy. Keynote speakers include Baobab Studios executive and “Madagascar” movies Eric Darnell, who will discuss immersive storytelling in virtual reality; Weta Digital senior visual effects supervisor and four-time Oscar winner Joe Letteri, who will discuss the evolution of visual effects technology and one of his latest projects, “War for the Planet of the Apes”; and “World of Warcraft” game designer Rob Pardo, the CEO of Bonfire Studios.

Along with the US distribution news, a new painting of Saoirse’s character in Loving Vincent has been released! It almost feels strange to refer to it as a promotional still, but given that the film was all painted, it seems like that’s what it is. The image has been added to our gallery!
