LOVING VINCENT (12A) on Monday 30 July is this month’s film club offering. The life and controversial death of Vincent Van Gogh as recounted in his paintings and by the characters that inhabit them.

The film has been popular with audiences, a prize-winner at many festivals and was nominated for both BAFTA and Academy Awards for Best Animated Feature.
