Where Film Noir Lives...Too!
This year's edition includes canonical titles THE BIG CLOCK, SORRY, WRONG NUMBER and THE HITCH-HIKER; many fan favorites from this year's Noir City Film Festival (noircity.com) at the historic Castro Theatre in San Francisco, including HELL DRIVERS, THE CHASE and THE SNIPER; plus the newest restorations funded by the Film Noir Foundation's efforts: HIGH TIDE, REPEAT PERFORMANCE and TRY AND GET ME! This year's program also includes the Library of Congress's new restoration of the uncut version of Richard Wright's NATIVE SON, and with MAN IN THE DARK and INFERNO, two examples of noir in a startling new dimension: 3-D!
Film Noir Foundation founder Eddie Muller and noted film noir scholars Foster Hirsch and Alan K. Rode will introduce selected shows and lead post-screening discussions.
The Film Noir Foundation, created by writer and film historian Eddie Muller, is committed to rescuing and restoring America's noir heritage. All FNF proceeds from Noir City festivals go to finding and restoring films in danger of being lost or permanently damaged. For information on how to join the FNF's campaign and receive its bimonthly magazine, visit FilmNoirFoundation.org.
Special thanks to the Film Noir Foundation board, including Eddie Muller, Foster Hirsch and Alan K. Rode, for their invaluable work.
