Noir City DC 2017 Starts Tomorrow

Screen Shot 2017-10-13 at 6.06.57 AM

Washington DC (actually Silver Spring, MD, if you want to get technical) will be transformed into Noir City, complete with shadows, femmes fatales, and maybe a few fedoras. It all starts tomorrow at the AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center. Just look at all those great titles! You can find the complete schedule here. If that’s not enough to get you excited, film historian and noir expert Foster Hirsch will be on hand to introduce films on Oct. 14 and 15, and the Czar of Noir himself, Eddie Muller, will attend the following weekend.


If you can’t attend, please consider subscribing to the Noir City e-magazine, which gets you four quarterly issues delivered digitally to your email inbox for only $20, which helps support the Film Noir Foundation. The writing is superb and the art design (by Michael Kronenberg) a thing of beauty. I’m going to stop this post now so I can read my copy which just arrived.

I’ll be skulking around Noir City DC in a few days. Maybe I’ll see you there.

  1. Several first-time watches: IVY, BORN TO BE BAD, TOUCHEZ PAS AU GRISBI, ANY NUMBER CAN PLAY, THE SICILIAN CLAN and ONCE A THIEF. Several others I’ve seen but can’t wait to see on the big screen, such as OUT OF THE PAST, THE TAKING OF PELHAM and others. Always a fun festival!
