UK distributor Dogwoof has acquired the global rights to Kim Longinotto’s documentary Love Is All (pictured).

The film, which screened at Sheffield Doc/Fest earlier this year and was coproduced by the festival’s director Heather Croall, explores cinematic depictions of love and courtship during the 20th century, using only archival footage.

Longinotto and collaborator Ollie Huddleston edited the film from hundreds of hours of footage from the BFI and Yorkshire film archives to chronicle the history of romance on screen in the UK, from the first screen kiss to gay liberation and free love. Musician Richard Hawley composed the soundtrack.

“The film broadens the idea of love, by looking at the changes in our attitudes to multiculturalism and same sex relationships from 1898 to today,” the director said in a statement.
