The 19° Festival Internacional Signes da Noite will take place in from December 27-31, 2021.

This year's 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 worldwide. In these last years we have presented some
a 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 is performed with competition and focus programs in Paris, 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 and 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.

  • 'The Recess,' inspired by the tragic story of Sahar Khodayari, won the Edward Snowden award at the Signes de Nuit Festival. It was a great honor, and wonderful experience. Thank you for this great honor.

  • It was a great pleasure to be an official selection to a Festival which by the selection of its movies, is defined as extremely interesting. I had the chance to watch almost 15 movies of the Festival and i must say that i recognised that the movies were selected out of bravery and not by what the times are imposing us. Best wishes for the future.
