    LOVE IS ALL takes us on a journey through the twentieth century, exploring love and courtship on screen in a century of unprecedented social upheaval. From the very first kisses ever caught on film, through the disruption of war, to the birth of youth culture, gay liberation and free love, we follow courting couples flirting at tea dances, kissing in the back of the movies, shacking up and fighting for the right to love. This is the celluloid story of love and courtship since the birth of the movie camera; told with spellbinding footage from the British Film Institute archive and Yorkshire Film Archive and many more!

    What's brilliant about making films is that you don't have to be interesting. It's the people you film who are interesting, and you can celebrate them.

    Kim Longinotto (1952) is a British documentary filmmaker, well known for making films that highlight the plight of female victims of oppression or discrimination. She studied English and European literature and later followed friend and future filmmaker, Nick Broomfield to the National Film and Television School. Her first films were set in Japan (EAT THE KIMONO, THE GOOD WIFE OF TOKYO). She is also known for DREAM GIRLS and ROCK WIVES (produced by the BBC and Channel 4), DIVORCE IRANIAN STYLE, GAEA GIRLS, THE DAY I WILL NEVER FORGET (Sundance FF), SISTERS IN LAW (winner of two awards at Cannes IFF) and SALMA. Her latest film, DREAMCATCHER, got her the Directing Award at Sundance FF. The project AUNTS (in collaboration with Mirjana Karanović, Šejla Kamerić and Andrea Štaka) is taking part in Pitching du Réel 2018.
