Dogwoof has picked up world sales rights to Kim Longinotto’s Sheffield doc Love is All.

Funded by the BBC and BFI and produced by Mark Atkin, Heather Croall (Sheffield Doc/Fest) and Martin Rosenbaum (Pervert’s Guide…), the film explores love and courtship through the history of cinema.

Longinotto (Pink Saris, Rough Aunties) and collaborator Ollie Huddleston crafted the film entirely of archive footage, including the very first screen kiss and well-known and obscure examples of rebellious teen love, couples flirting, gay love and free love.

Love is All is one of the most romantic films in recent years. Its appeal spans audiences across demographics, young and old - a fantastic date movie and a treasure throve for the cinephiles everywhere,” said Vesna Cudic, sales and acquisitions, Dogwoof.
