IFC Films has announced that it has acquired North American rights to Duncan Ward's "Boogie Woogie." They will release the film theatrically on April 23rd and nationwide on video on demand beginning April 21st.

Adapted by Danny Moynihan from his novel of the same name, "Boogie Woogie" is a satire set against the backdrop of the contemporary London art scene where lust, ambition and power prevail while success and failure precariously balance on a knife edge. The film features an ensemble cast including established stars Danny Huston, Stellan Skarsgard, Heather Graham, Alan Cumming, Christopher Lee, Charlotte Rampling, Amanda Seyfried, Jaime Winstone and Jack Huston. The film premiered last year at the Edinburgh International Film Festival.

The film is an Autonomous/Colourframe Production with S Films, in association with Constance Media, Firefly Films, Muse Productions, P&C Arcade Films and Magna Films. It was produced by Cat Villiers, Chris Simon, Kami Naghdi and Danny Moynihan.

The deal for the film was negotiated by Arianna Bocco, IFC Films VP of Acquisitions and Co-Productions.

"Duncan Ward and Danny Moynihan have crafted a satirical and hilarious Altman-esque send-up of an art world gone mad," Jonathan Sehring, President of IFC Entertainment, said in a statement. "We are thrilled to be working with the extraordinary cast and filmmakers of 'Boogie Woogie' and our friends at The Works. This is a great film for all of our platforms and we are incredibly excited by its prospects."
