Courmayeur Noir in Festival

International festival of noir films.


The Festival's main aim is the promotion and diffusion of the noir genre in its various forms (crime story, suspense, thriller, horror, fantasy, spy story, whodunit...) in Italy and throughout the world, by presenting previews (in and out of competition), retrospectives, meetings, exhibits, and so forth.


  • OFFICIAL SELECTION – The main section of the festival, which screens films both in competition and out of competition;
  • DOC NOIR – A high quality selection of the latest documentaries dealing with the noir world in terms of subject, style or themes profile. These films are either 35mm prints or Beta SP Pal videos;
  • MINI NOIR – A select choice of films dedicated to young audiences, featuring mystery, adventure and fantasy plots suitable for younger viewers;
  • RETROSPECTIVE – Films not necessarily of recent production. The section is articulated in several programs.


  • Black Lion for Best Film,
  • Special Mystery Award for the Best Actor/Actress,
  • Audience Award for Best Film.



  • Recent production aimed primarily at theatrical distribution, and belonging to the genres of thriller, suspense, whodunit, detective story, crime story, spy story and to the contamination of the mystery genres;
  • All films selected in this section must have been completed after December 2014 and cannot have previously screened in Italy or at an Italian festival. Films that have already been presented in other international festivals can be selected for the competition as long as they have not won official awards in specific festivals similar in kind to the Courmayeur Noir in Festival.
  • Short films are not selected.
