Kawase Naomi in Osaka

According to an article published on Screen International's website  
on Tuesday, THE MOURNING FOREST (Mogari no mori) has at the moment  
only sold to France, Spain, Israel and CIS (seven former Soviet  
Republics in Commonwealth of Independent States).

The international sales company is the Dreamachine (Paris) - recently  
formed with the merging of Celluloid Dreams and Hanway - who you  
should contact for screening rights.  However, I suspect they'll hold  
back the North American premiere for a prestigious festival like New  
York or Toronto.

Dreamachine Contact:
Email: info at celluloid-dreams.com
Tel: +33 1 49 70 03 70

Person in charge of North American Operations is Charlotte Mickie:

Best of luck.
