The Kit Noir Film Festival at Columbia University is live

 The always excellent Kit Noir Film Festival is up and running virtually. The fest this year focuses on stories that take place on or around the US Mexico border. This is a killer fest you are going to want to be part of.

Here are the details from Soheil Rezayazdi the festival manager:

This year's festival is virtual and 100% free, meaning you can watch the films anywhere at no cost. Pretty cool, right? The festival explores noir cinema set at the US-Mexico border and includes:

Anthony Mann’s Border Incident (streaming today and tomorrow)

John Farrow’s Where Danger Lives (streaming March 13-14)

A roundtable discussion with speakers from RAICES, Artes de México, and elsewhere (live on March 18, 7pm EST)

Orson Welles’ Touch of Evil (streaming March 20-21)

Each film will have a 48-hour window for viewing at home. Simply RSVP to receive the streaming/Zoom links. I hope you'll consider joining – it'll likely be the only time this festival is done virtually, so it should be a unique experience.

The festival website with details on the films, the speakers and other details can be found here.
