Our Oscar Contenders Are Here

Faces Places and Loving Vincent have been nominated for Academy Awards in their respective categories including Faces Places for Best Documentary Feature, and Loving Vincent for Best Animated Feature.


It is finally time for documentary goddess Agnes Varda to put on her crown and receive the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. Bow down on March 4 2018 as we predict that this 165 cm tall legend will collect her first golden statue for her endearing film Faces Places. If you’re yet to be charmed by Ms Varda then look here – rarely is a cinematic pioneer a woman of 89 who also happens to be as cute as a button.

Faces Places is in cinemas January 25 


Loving Vincent blew minds from out of no where. Directed by two reasonably unknown filmmakers, both Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman have risen up against Disney, Pixar and Dreamworks to deliver one of the year’s most innovative films. Featuring 65,000 oil painted frames hand painted by 125 professional oil painters, Loving Vincent is the world’s first fully painted feature film. But don’t let the aesthetics distract you, Kobiela and Welchman have crafted a murder mystery that will trouble both Van Gogh theorists and fans for decades. Form and narrative make this animation an extremely worthy contender.

Loving Vincent is out on disc and digital March 7
