NOIR CITY PASSPORT 2020
America doesn't have a monopoly on swaggering gangsters, larcenous lovers, surly ex-cons, corrupt cops, and scheming femmes fatales. Six years after the first NOIR CITY: INTERNATIONAL, the Film Noir Foundation is at it again, presenting an array of classic films from around the globe, a wide-ranging, thematically cohesive immersion in a sordid world of sinister and sexy affairs, including the world premieres of two new restorations by the Film Noir Foundation! Yes, "It's a Bitter Little World"--but for ten days and nights at the majestic Castro Theatre, NOIR CITY is cinema paradiso! As always, the festival is programmed and hosted by Eddie Muller, internationally renowned Czar of Noir and host of the popular Turner Classic Movies series Noir Alley.

For veteran cinephiles, it's a chance to again experience cherished cinematic masterpieces in a bona fide movie palace. For those just starting their cinematic journey, NOIR CITY is the perfect introduction to a wide world of international filmmakers and stars, on the big screen, larger than life. The 10-day excursion travels through hot-blooded nightclubs of the Mexican cabareteras, neon-streaked alleys of Japanese yakuza thrillers, the stylish Parisian underworld, Italian palazzos hiding crimes of every social stratum, a Kafkaesque Prague as envisioned by the Czech New Wave, even a rare serial-killer film set in Nazi Germany made by Hollywood's finest director of film noir, Robert Siodmak. Tour guides include some of the world's most revered filmmakers: Michelangelo Antonioni, Andzrej Wajda, Julien Duvivier, Jean-Pierre Melville, Roberto Gavaldon, Jiri Weiss, and Masahiro Shinoda.

"Now, more than ever, it's essential to resist the dread and paranoia of contemporary times by looking beyond our differences," says Muller. "Let's appreciate the noir ethos for the creativity it inspires and the warning flares it long ago flashed on screens worldwide. Noir has no national boundaries. It's the same story, everywhere."

Secure your spot for all the fun with an all-access NOIR CITY 18 PASSPORT for $125. This all-access festival pass grants the bearer:

- Entry to all films during NOIR CITY 18

- Opening Night Passholders' Reception (Castro Mezzanine) beginning 6 p.m. January 24, 2020

- Festival program to be announced Wednesday, December 18, 6 p.m. at noircity.com

Proceeds from the NOIR CITY festival help fund the FNF's restoration and preservation efforts year-round. This is your chance to have a smashing time AND preserve a valuable art form. The perfect holiday gift for the film lover in your family!
