Back to selection


The IFP and Focus World are hosting a screening of the highly recommended drama Return, by Liza Johnson, on the online screening platform Constellation tonight. Filmmaker readers receive 25% off, and Johnson will be participating in a post-screening Q&A. From last week’s newsletter, here are the details. (And if you haven’t subscribed to our newsletter, why not? It’s free, and I write something special for it most weeks.)

On the heels of its theatrical release earlier this month, IFP will be co-presenting with Focus World a special interactive screening of the feature film Return on Tuesday, February 28th – presented on Constellation, the online social movie theater platform. Following the movie, writer/director Liza Johnson will be hosting a Q&A, which will take place in Constellation’s virtual movie theater platform, with Johnson live via webcam. Return was a selection of IFP’s No Borders International Co-Production Market in 2008 and world premiered in the Directors Fortnight section of Cannes 2011. Linda Cardellini stars along with Michael Shannon and John Slattery in the story of a returning war vet who finds it difficult to settle back into the family life she left behind in her small hometown. Time Out New York’s Joshua Rothkopf wrote that the film’s “anxieties… are at the heart of the American experience for many. It’s what indie filmmaking ought to be.” Filmmaker readers can receive a 25% discount for this screening with code “IFP.” For more on this special screening, click here.
