Signes de Nuit


Years running: 20 (since 2003)

Signes de Nuit

Independent international festival of documentary art and audiovisual creation.


The main festival takes place in different central places and cinemas in Paris. During the year, the festival is invited to present selections of its program in festivals, cultural institutions and film schools worldwide. The programme is comprised of films, which reflect new views, original imagery and critical approach to the crucial points of the modern 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 to the unpredictable experiment.

Beside the international selections the festival presents programs from guest festivals and schools. Musical/sound contributions and short lectures, theatrical happenings or performances (always short) are also included to contribute to an animated ambiance of exchange.
