52nd Thessaloniki International Film Festival Announces 2011 Experimental Forum

Journey of No Return will be screened in the section “LAST YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS – DISAPPEARANCE OF THE AVAILABLE” of  the Experimental Forum of 52nd Thessaloniki International Film Festival.

From the announcement of the festival:
LAST YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS – DISAPPEARANCE OF THE AVAILABLE

This section presents a small, choice selection of experimental films from all over the world, made in the past year and defined by the general subject of Disappearance. These films are not considered rare in the experimental scene, so they are essentially “disappearing” because of their availability; the Forum aims to correct that and give them the attention that they deserve.
