NOIR CITY presented by the Film Noir Foundation

San Francisco


The most popular film noir festival in the world returns to San Francisco's majestic Castro Theatre for its 14th edition, January 22-31, 2016. Its timely theme, given the threat traditional arts face from the technology revolution and its skyrocketing living costs, is "The Art of Darkness" -- a collection of 25 noir-stained films exploring the pressures, pitfalls, paranoia, and pain of being an artist in an indifferent and often cruel world. This time the tortured protagonists aren't felons or fall guys; they're writers, painters, dancers, photographers, and musicians.

Some of the best art-flavored classic noirs will screen, including Nicholas Ray's In a Lonely Place and Fritz Lang's Scarlet Street. However, along with the traditional choices, we're including some unexpected selections. "We're expanding the limits of traditional noir to enhance this year's theme," said NOIR CITY producer, host, and co-programmer Eddie Muller, "There's always been a dark side to the way the Arts are represented in film, and I thought it would be intriguing to include some unexpected films, like Love Me or Leave Me and Blow-Up, that have trace elements of noir in the way they explore the more treacherous aspects of creativity."

Join us for 10 thrilling days of art, madness, and murder!
