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!

What a wonderful week this has been! Following the news of A24 acquiring Lady Bird, it has been announced that Good Deed Entertainment will be releasing Loving Vincent in the United States! The release dates are currently set for September 22 in New York City and September 29 in Los Angeles. Read the complete article from Animation World Network below.

LOS ANGELES — Good Deed Entertainment has finalized their Fall theatrical distribution plans for the award-winning animated feature Loving Vincent. The film will open in New York City on Friday, September 22nd, in Los Angeles on Friday, September 29th, and will expand to top regional markets throughout October and November.

The Van Gogh Museum, whose mission is to continually broaden awareness for the life and work of Vincent van Gogh, has not only provided assistance and support for the film throughout its development process, but has also given a full endorsement of the completed film and plans to work in conjunction with GDE to promote its release.

Further support for Loving Vincent comes from official brand-sponsor Royal Talens, whose Van Gogh oil paint was used exclusively for the oil on canvas works of art created for the picture.

“I was absolutely enthralled with Loving Vincent,” says GDE CEO Scott Donley. “It was like watching van Gogh’s extraordinary paintings come to life! GDE can’t wait to share this amazing cinematic experience with audiences as they discover some of the mysteries surrounding Vincent’s life and death.”

Loving Vincent recently received the Audience Award at the 2017 Annecy Int’l Animated Film Festival and was named the Best Animated Film at the 2017 Shanghai Int’l Film Festival. Written & directed by Dorota Kobiela & Hugh Welchman, the film was produced by Poland’s Oscar-winning studio BreakThru Films (Peter and the Wolf) and U.K. Oscar winner Trademark Films (Shakespeare in Love).

Loving Vincent is the world’s first fully oil painted feature film. Bringing the paintings of Vincent van Gogh to life to tell his remarkable story. Every one of the 65,000 frames of the film is an oil-painting, hand-painted by 125 professional oil-painters who travelled from all across the world to the Loving Vincent studios in Poland and Greece to be a part of the production.

“During the long years through which we painted the 65,000 paintings that went into making this film, a lot of support came to U.S. from members of the public in America,” co-directors Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman commented. “We received financial support, moral support and enthusiastic encouragement that got U.S. through some dark times, so for U.S. it is absolutely fitting that the first place in the world that this film will go before the public is in America. And as our film opens with a gigantic tracking shot down from the stars, which took 3 of our best painters a combined 18 months to animate, all inspired by Van Gogh’s ‘The Starry Night,’ part of The Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection, there could be no more fitting place to open the film than in New York.”

Here’s the official plot synopsis:

France, Summer 1891.. After hearing that Vincent van Gogh killed himself, Armand Roulin (Douglas Booth), is given a letter from Vincent by his father, Postman Joseph Roulin (Chris O’Dowd), to hand-deliver to the Theo van Gogh, Vincent’s brother. In Paris there is no trace of brother Theo. Armand’s search leads him to the paint supplier, Pere Tanguy (John Sessions), who tells him that Theo died shortly after Vincent, apparently destroyed by the death of his older brother. Pere Tanguy recounts how Theo helped Vincent on his incredible transformation from a down-and-out at age 28 to the new artistic sensation of Paris at the time of his death 10 years later. After hearing this story Armand believes he may have misjudged his father’s friend, and really wants to know why Vincent chose the moment of impending success to take his life: Pere Tanguy has no answer to this.

Armand then journeys on to Vincent’s final destination, the quiet village of Auvers-sur-Oise to meet Doctor Paul Gachet (Jerome Flynn), Vincent’s doctor in his final weeks. He stays at the Ravoux Inn, where Vincent boarded for the last 10 weeks of his life, and where on July 29, 1890 he died of a bullet wound to his abdomen. Armand meets the Inn-keeper’s daughter, Adeline Ravoux (Eleanor Tomlinson) and also conducts interviews with Doctor Gachet’s housekeeper, Louise Chevalier (Helen McCrory), the Doctor’s daughter, Marguerite Gachet (Oscar nominee Saoirse Ronan). Down by the river where Vincent often spent his days, he meets the Boatman (Aidan Turner).

Armand gets the sense that much is being hidden from him by the villagers and is determined to root out the truth. A run in with the local police, a chance encounter with a second Doctor, and finally his much anticipated meeting with the mercurial Doctor Gachet, lead to unexpected and heart-rending revelations. Armand then finally understands and appreciates the passionate and surprising life of Vincent van Gogh.
