The dust settles slowly on the 6th NFF, thus let me thank everyone who contributed to the success.Vítek Grigartzik, festival director (full text in the News section)
NFF 2018 is over
The 6th year of Noir Film Festival is over. The programme offered nine sections including 34 feature films and 1 documentary and in addition also 1 short film and 2 TV series from our partner HBO.
Noir Eye for Samantha Fuller
“Thank you for a Royal Noir Time!” Samantha Fuller wrote on a traditional festival wall, where every year NFF guests leave their notes.
For the sixth time, part of the NFF program is a block of Czechoslovak films, which according to our judgement is characterized by noir characteristics.
With the escalated aesthetics of the culminating noir cycle there was a disrupted psyche corresponding with the exaggerated behaviour of the male characters. These are connected with several distinctive actors, for whom we dedicate a special programme section.
Samantha Fuller will come to NFF
In 2013, she directed a documentary about her father called A Fuller Life. This year Samantha Fuller will come to our festival!
The New Femme Fatale
The archetypal femme fatale, an emancipated attractive woman who does not hesitate to walk over corpses when she wants to achieve her goals, is perhaps the most spectatorially popular aspect of film noir.
Samuel Fuller's noir films from 50's and 60's will be part of his mini-retrospective at this year's Noir Film Festival.
In these 1940s and 50s productions from Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland, the viewers can see remarkable parallels with the contemporary Hollywood noirs.
