The world’s first fully painted feature film Loving Vincent will be screened at the Main Corner on Sunday 20 May 2018 at 12:00pm.
Loving Vincent brings the paintings of Vincent van Gogh to life to tell his remarkable story. The film is written and directed by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman, and produced by Poland's Breakthru Films and UK's Trademark Films.
Loving Vincent was first shot in live action with actors and then hand-painted over, frame-by-frame in oils. The final effect is an interaction of the actors playing van Gogh’s famous portraits.
“Combining both art and film, the Main Corner is the ideal venue as the home of the Riddoch Art Gallery and we would love the community to join us for this free screening,” Main Corner Coordinator Talie Teakle said.
The film took more than six years to make and is made up of 65,000 paintings by 125 artists from 20 different countries, telling the story of van Gogh.
“We think this would be of particular interest to art lovers which is why the Main Corner as the cultural hub of Mount Gambier is the perfect location for this film,” Ms Teakle said.
The Kings Floor at the Main Corner offers the full cinematic experience and seats 100 people. Bookings are essential as seats are filling up fast.
“After the screening people are welcome to stay and view the behind the scenes footage showing the making of the film,” Ms Teakle said.
