NC Xmas: Wednesday, December 20
NC 16: Friday, January 26-Sunday, February 4
So NC 16 is again lined up to have its final day on Super Bowl Sunday.
The festival theme is not made explicit, but will center around "films noirs from 1941-53." Whether they will be organized chronologically or otherwise is, of course, part of the "deep dark secret" that we won't know about until Xmas time.
We would be remiss in our duty if we did not remind you that all of the key "social justice noirs" that have barely managed to materialize in theaters this year (though the American Cinematheque did show CROSSFIRE two weeks ago in their Mitchum retrospective--bravo to Grant Mohninger!) were made in the time frame that NC 16 is going to be covering. (We won't be holding our breath.)
