It's that time again! The 12th annual San Francisco Film Noir Foundation Festival begins Friday, January 24th!
This year, the festival beckons to us with the title "Noir City 12 - It's a Bitter Little World."
Why? Well, this time the focus is on international films, and they promise to take us on a cinematic journey around the world, to dispel the belief that noir is a singularly American phenomenon. The films presented will come from France, Germany, Britain, Norway, Mexico, Argentina, and Japan.
Aside from the foreign selections, there will be a couple of exciting restorations, Too Late for Tears (1949) and The Hitch-Hiker (1953).
Altogether, 27 films will be presented in 10 days.

See you there!
