CHANGE IN THE PROGRAMME: NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT THE PERSIAN CATS
We regret that due to new developments regarding the distribution of the film in The UK we are unable to screen NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT THE PERSIAN CATS at our festival. Although festival confirmed the screening of the film with the world distributor earlier and printed in official festival programme, the film’s UK distribution rights later (after festival started) has been sold to a company in the UK that is not willing to screen film at the festivals before the general release. As a result of this new development we will not be able to screen the film at our festival. Festival is programming another film from the programme for the same time (29th of November Riverside Studios 4.30pm). Please check riverside Studios web site http://www.riversidestudios.co.uk/ and our website www.lkff.co.uk
A DAY IN KURDISH COUNTRYSIDE IN SYRIA
we are replacing the film film called A day in The North with the film called A Day in Kurdish Countryside In Syria. it has been understood that A Day in the North has been copied from another film called A day in Village of the Kurds in Syria and the name of the film and director has been changed. This has been reported to us very recently and now we have received the correct film with the real director's details.
