Forget the read carpet & paparazzi, it’s all about black & white at this film fest.
The Arthur Lyons Film Noir Festival is one of my favorite film festivals that takes place in the Coachella Valley all year long. Not only is a rare occasion to watch this era on the big screen, but some of these films that are going to be screened this season are so rare you can’t even find them on Netflicks (*gasp*)! Rarities on the silver screen…a weekend you don’t want to miss.
Even if you aren’t the biggest “film nerd”, but you are a lover, catching a Film Noir is a classy and sophisticated date. It’s an occasion to dress up, go out, have a martini and add just a pinch of drama to your life.
Lovers, loners and film nerds alike…come check out the Film Noir Festival this weekend, you’ll be glad you did. All information provided below. Enjoy!
presented by the Palm Springs Cultural Center
Founded in 2000 by the late mystery author and Palm Springs community leader Arthur Lyons, this unique festival features an eclectic mixture of landmark and obscure vintage movies from the classic film noir era. Laden with period post war cynicism, these glorious black and white films are laden with suspense, sexuality and crime portrayed from the perspective of the criminals.
Each year, the festival showcases the best of film noir accentuated by a scintillating array of movie stars who appear on stage for post screening Q&A discussions, autographs and book signings.
The Arthur Lyons Film Noir Film Festival wouldn’t be possible without the generous gifts of corporate sponsors and individual donors who believe that Palm Springs should be the home of one of the best film noir Film Festivals in the world!
