In six days, Noir in Festival hosted over fifteen authors of novels in varying shades of noir. First in Milan and then in Como, the novelists met with their readers and discussed their own relationships with crime, fear, and the noir genre.
From guests of honor Abel Ferrara and Dario Argento to directors on the Noir lineup Aitor Arregi and Tarik Saleh, filmmakers on hand for this year’s Noir in Festival showed off their films and discussed their love of storytelling.
The film by Jon Garaņo and Aitor Arregi wins Noir in Festival’s prize for best film. A special mention goes to Lynne Ramsay for You Were Never Really Here. Fares Fares gets kudos from the jury for his role in The Nile Hilton Incident.
