Dogwoof picks up Raindance and Tribeca winner by directors Andreas Koefoed and Christian Bonke.

Dogwoof has taken all UK rights to Raindance documentary award winner Ballroom Dancer, the story of a former world Latin Dance champion who tries to recapture his former glory with a new dance partner, who is also his lover.

The deal was brokered between Oli Harbottle of Dogwoof and Peter Jaeger of Autlook Films. The film will get a UK theatrical release in 2013.

Dogwoof’s head of distribution Harbottle said: “Ballroom Dancer is a fantastic addition to our catalogue, having had a hugely successful festival life, and I have no doubt that the film will resonate with the large dancing community here in the UK on its release early next year.”
