We've got official theatrical playdates, hot off the presses, for Kim Nguyen's Oscar-nominated (Best Foreign Language Film) Congo-set drama War Witch or Rebelle, an S&A 2012 Highlight selection, which stars Rachel Mwanza.

The film is about a young Congolese girl and child soldier named Komona (played by Mwanza, who won a Best Actress Award at Berlin for her performance), her fight for survival and struggle to find some normalcy and peace in her life.

The multi-award-winning film has already won some film awards this year, and will now finally get a theatrical release through Tribeca Film, starting in New York on March 1 2013, and expanding to other markets through June.

It's a film that we encourage you to see in the theater, but if you can't wait until it comes to your city, or if it's not coming to your city at all, the film will also be available on demand starting on February 26th.

Here are the theatrical playdates for the film's release, sent to us today:
