A NEW PREVIEW, ALL DEDICATED TO NOIR GENRE, ABOUT THE XIV EDITION OF RAVENNA NIGHTMARE FILM FEST

 

Among the most interesting appointment of XVI edition of Ravenna Nightmare there is certainly the retrospective Lezioni di Cinema - The evolution of the genre from classical to postmodern, curated by the essayist and film critic Mariangela Sansone.

The Neo Noir is a sub-genre of noir. It uses most of the elements of noir filmography but with the addition of topics, content, styles and visual elements which were not present or were not used in the Forties and Fifties’ noir movies. Today, this term is used to describe those movies, realized after the Fifties and Sixties, that belong to this kind of genre or share their themes.

 

The exhibition presents three of the most significant titles of the sub-genre of noir modern setting, including the unforgettable masterpiece of 1974 Chinatown, by Roman Polanski, L’Amico Americano (1977) by Win Wenders and Brivido Caldo (Body Heat, 1981) di Lawrence Kasdan.

THE DARK SIDE OF MOVIES
Sono aperte le iscrizioni al XIV° RNFF 2016 -Call for entry Ravenna Nigtmare Film Fest 2016
 

The new coordinates of Ravenna Nightmare Fim Fest are from the new title of the festival The dark side of movies to the image of “Chinatown”. This year Ravenna Nightmare expands its horizons to bordering genres: noir is one of them. It is just within the new Retrospective named the "Neo Noir", that Roman Polanski’s work of genius dated 1974 finds its place.


RAVENNA NIGHTMARE FILM FEST 2016
Sono aperte le iscrizioni al XIV° RNFF 2016 -Call for entry Ravenna Nigtmare Film Fest 2016
 

Ravenna Nightmare Film Fest evolves. The direction indicated by the International Competition for Short films (free and anarchist by nature)  and by the natural and increasingly frequent contamination between genres, made us reflect on how much a change was almost indispendable. The horror film, which in our festival will always find a safe shelter, was not enough to represent that vast production of films that have no place in the official circuit of the Cinemas and generalist festivals. After having explored for 13 years the horror cinema under all its tendencies also within the International Competition through retrospectives and major tributes, this year Ravenna Nightmare Film Fest expands its horizons towards other genres like noir in particular, but also crime, science fiction, thriller, fantasy, ghost stories and mystery; in short, the Festival evolves to the dark side of Movies. A natural evolution which became necessary in order for the Festival to continue to represent a point of reference for authors of films which belong to the above mentioned genres. The main event of the Festival will still be the International Competition for feature films coupled with the International Competition for short films. Special events will also make Ravenna to be for one week the point of reference for genre films and will show hopefully to the widest possible audience, the dark side of movies.
