Loving Vincent  named best European animated film

Loving Vincent named best European animated film

Last night, the European Film Awards (EFA)  named Loving Vincent as the best animated feature of the year. The U.K./Poland co-production of Breakthru Films and Trademark Films has been directed by the husband-and-wife team of Hugh Welchman and Dorota Kobiela. Among its most talked-about aspects is its production method: the producers of the film say that over 65,000 oil paintings were created for the film’s frame-by-frame animation. The EFA honour which has been given out since 2009 and was won last year by My Life as a Zucchini.The category was expanded to four nominees this year, a reflection of the growing quality of feature films pouring out of Europe.
