About

This Festival was founded in 2013

Founded 2003 in Paris the International Festival SIGNES DE NUIT had become a multinational meeting place and is today active in form of competition and focus programs in Berlin, Lisboa, Bangkok, Urbino, Saarbrücken and other places. 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 33 countries, among those Algeria, Australia, Chile, Cuba, Hongary, Indonesia, Japan, Lebanon, Lithuania, Peru, Russia, Slovenia, Tunisia, Turkey, United States ...

The intention of the festival is to search and present films, which reflects new views, original imagery and critical approach to the crucial points of the modern human existence. t looks for astonishing, strange, surprising and sometimes provocativ works. It is a place for cinema that expands its own boundaries, celebrating confrontations, tolerance and sensibilisation for cultural differences, independence and individuality, ready to open up for unpredictable experimentation.

For each festival we compose new programs and invite a different jury.

With the submission on this platform you give automatically the screening permission of your film to the festival. The festival can integrate your film in its actual edition without further permissions from your side.

We can't send back dvds, blurays, usb keys, hard disc ect.
