The Film Noir Foundation is a non-profit public benefit corporation created as an educational resource regarding the cultural, historical, and artistic significance of film noir as an original American cinematic movement.
It is the mission of the Foundation to find and preserve films in danger of being lost or irreparably damaged, and to ensure that high quality prints of these classic films remain in circulation for theatrical exhibition to future generations.
The centerpiece of the Foundation's public awareness campaign is the annual NOIR CITY festival held in San Francisco. For more information on the Foundation, and how you can be a supporter, donor, or sponsor, visit the Film Noir Foundation website.
The Film Noir Foundation's website has an ever expanding catalog of noir-related video: NOIR CITY guest appearances including the luminous Angie Dickinson's at NOIR CITY X; interviews with stars like Lauren Bacall and Ernest Borgnine, as well as directors like Paul Schrader and Andre De Toth; and homages to film noir.
