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, 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. It looks for astonishing, strange, surprising and sometimes provocative works. It is a place for cinema that expands its own boundaries, celebrating confrontations, tolerance and sensitisation 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.
