Noir City 12 San Francisco: January 24 -- February 2, 2014

NOIR CITY's flagship San Francisco festival returns to its home at the historic Castro Theatre January 24—February 2, 2014. 

The 12th edition of the film noir festival is going international, exploding the long-held belief that noir stories and style are a specifically American phenomenon. "Our desire to expand the scope of the festival has resulted in our most ambitious program ever," said festival impresario and host Eddie Muller. "Its overall impact will, I suspect, change many people's long-standing ethnocentric preconceptions about film noir."

Focusing on the years immediately following World War II, this year's NOIR CITY festival features classic noir films from France, Mexico, Japan, Argentina, Germany, Spain, Norway, and Britain, as well as a complementary sampling of homegrown Hollywood product.

The festive, convivial atmosphere for which NOIR CITY is known will also take on an international flavor, highlighted by live music and complimentary libations in accord with the festival's multicultural programming.
