Disappearing Act launched as an annual event in 2009 and instantly became a popular event in New York for its unique, carefully curated celebration of the vitality of European cinema. This year, the program presents films that have gained acclaim on the festival circuit and with critics, yet remain largely unknown to American audiences. Though some of the films have secured U.S. theatrical distribution and a DVD release, the unbending financial demands of the current distribution system prevents them from attaining wider audiences.
Tickets to opening night screening of The System are available for purchase at the IFC Center and online at ifccenter.com for $13, seniors and students $9, IFC members $8 The Opening night screening will be followed by a party for ticket holders.
