The 18° Festival Internacional Signes da Noite will take place in from December 27-31, 2020.

This years edition will be for well known security reasons an ONLINE EDITION.
The selected films will be presented during two days. They will be password and download protected.

Since 2003 the International Festival SIGNES DE NUIT is active in
Paris and world wide. In these last years we have presented some
thousand films from around 70 countries in our principal yearly
festivals and on the same time in around 140 programs in collaboration
with cultural institutions and festivals in up to now 38 countries,
among those Algeria, Australia, Chile, Cuba, Hungary, Indonesia,
Japan, Lebanon, Lithuania, Peru, Russia, Slovenia, Tunisia, Turkey,
United States ...

Also the festival has been transformed in a multinational one and actually actually is performed wit competition and focus programs in Berlin, Lisbon, Bangkok, Tucuman (Argentina) and Urbino (Italy).

Each festival offers new selected programs and invite each time a different jury.

The Festival presents films, which reflect new views, original imagery, and a critical approach to the crucial elements of modern aand actual human existence. It is a place for cinema that expands its own boundaries, that is astonishing, different, potentially free from the pressure of tradition, ready to give itself over to unpredictable experimentation. New aesthetics are welcome.

    Very well communicated and run festival. The calibre of film on display was once again very high, and it was a pleasure to have a piece involved in the festival.

    It was a great honor for us that our short film was part of four Signs of the night festivals, given the opportunity to present the film in different countries some in person and some online due to the pandemic. It was also very nice to be able to watch the films of others :) Really nice festival! - Hope one day to be able to attend in person!!
