Noir In Festival XXVI Edition

Noir In Festival XXVI Edition

The XXVI edition of the Noir In Festival will begin Thursday, 8th December, at the Teatro Sociale of Como that will host the competing films and the most long-awaited books of the year together with their authors.

The noir kind festival was born in 1991 and since 2016 it has been taking place in Milan and Como.

Each year the jury grants the Raymond Chandler Award, the best Italian recognition to the career of a master in thriller and noir literature.
This year it will be granted to Roberto Saviano who, Wednesday, 7th December, during the Noir In Festival pre-opening night, will present his book La Paranza dei Bambini.

During the festival, the competing films, absolute previews in Italy, will be screened to appoint the winner of the Leone Nero.

The online readers vote will choose the short-list of the finalists of the Giorgio Scerbanenco Award, among whom the jury will grant the best noir Italian novel of the year.

From Sunday 11th until Wednesday 14th December, the festival will move to Milan’s IULM Open Space, where it will start with a gala evening to then continue with a wide programme of screenings, meetings, festivals and masterclasses.
