Does anyone know where it is possible to buy a copy of Farwell?

I have an elderly friend who’s part of the Lighter Than Air and would love to have a DVD of it. He missed both showings at the Cleveland International Film Festival. (he’s in a wheelchair and would’ve had a hard time navigating. He drives but it was too confusing to a)find a parking space and b)navigating in a wheelchair would be possible but certainly not easy. c)he had some other pressing issues he hadn’t expected.) I too have been looking for a DVD of it to give it to him for a gift or whatever. Please forward any replies directly to my e-mail

FAREWELL will be shown during the Cleveland International Film Festival, March 24 -April 3, 2011, sponsored in part by the Lighter-Than-Air-Society (LTAS) based in Akron, OH. Visit to find the schedule of movie showings once they are determined for this year’s festival.

To Webmaster- I am unable to read the 3 replies to my posting about the movie FAREWELL (2009) at the Cleveland Film Festial 2011, or about the site to purchase the DVD of the movie. Could you forward the emails directly to me. Thank you, Ron Syroid – Akron, OH March 11, 2011.

I wish they would make a DVD of this wonderful Dutch film! I’ve looked all over the internet for one and haven’t been able to find it! I’m sure we’ll hear whwn it comes out on this site!
Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas everybody!

By chance, have you seen it available for sale, either as a download, or a Region 1 (US) or Region 0 (no region protection) DVD?
