NoirFest Santa Monica 2012. Noir Festival. This is the archive of the 3 month Multi-discliplinary Arts Festival Celebrating Noir, that I conceived and directed for the City of Santa Monica in January, 2012. It included opening and closing parties, film screenings, photography exhibition, class in Noir Photography and also incorporated a city wide read of Raymond Chandler's Farewell My Lovely, with noir author panel discussions and signings including Michael Connelly. Also a multi-media lecture on historical settings of Chandler novels set in Santa Monica supported by the Santa Monica Conservancy led by noted Raymond Chandler historian, Judith Freeman.
