DISAPPEARING ACT IV, New York's only European film festival, showcases the vitality of contemporary European cinema. The festival features 25 narrative and documentary films from more than 20 countries. These films have made a name for themselves among critics and on the festival circuit, and yet remain largely unknown to U.S. audiences. The fourth annual edition is expanding to 3 cinemas with the opening at the IFC Center, followed by screenings at FIAF and the Bohemian National Hall. Filmmakers and special guests will introduce films. The program also includes a panel discussion about the presence of European cinema at U.S. universities.
DISAPPEARING ACT IV is organized by the Czech Center New York and the Romanian Cultural Institute in New York in partnership with the Austrian Cultural Forum New York, the Consulate General of the Republic of Croatia, the Consulate General of Estonia, the Consulate General of the Slovak Republic, the Consulate General of Slovenia, the Consulate General of Sweden, the Consulate General of Switzerland, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, Flanders House, the Goethe-Institut New York, the Hungarian Cultural Center, Instituto Cervantes - The Cultural Center of Spain in New York and the Consulate General of Spain, the Italian Cultural Institute, the Polish Cultural Institute New York, The Belgian Tourist Office - French Speaking Belgium - Brussels Wallonia, and with the support of the +421 Foundation, the Croatian Audiovisual Centre, the EYE Film Institute Netherlands, and the Slovak Film Institute.
