And So Goodbye: Damascus and Beirut

Further to our earlier posting, we now have the screening dates for Reel Festivals 2011.

And So Goodbye is to be screened at The Kindi Cinema, Damascus, Syria at 8.30pm on Wednesday 11th May 2011 and at The Metropolis Empire, Beirut, Lebanon at 8pm on Friday 13th May 2011. It will be shown with The Wicker Man (1973) at both screenings.

Reel Festivals is a new arts festival hosting cultural exchanges between Syria, Lebanon and Scotland. The festival will begin in Damascus, move to Beirut and end in Edinburgh with a changing program of music, film and poetry.

Previous Reel Festivals have focused on Afghanistan and Iraq and have been co-ordinated by Firefly International, Afghan Schools Trust and Edinburgh University Settlement.

The festival, supported by the British Council, takes place from the 7th to 21st May 2011. The full programme is listed here.
