Those of you who have been following my site for a while now may have seen me post about NoirCon previously. A celebration of all things noir in film, literature, art and anything else you care to mention, NoirCon was previously held as a face-to-face gathering in Philadelphia, but has been cancelled for the last few years, due to Covid and other problems.
Well, now it is back, this year as an online gathering.
NoirCon will take place Friday-Saturday, October 21-23, EST. Virtual NoirCon 2022 will be held on the Accelevents platform. An all-access pass covering the entire conference is $36. Registration includes access to the Accelevents platform for 30 days after the event, so attendees can re-watch events or catch up on panels they missed.
NoirCon is hands down the best literary/arts festival I have attended. The exact program is not live yet but whatever the fevered mind of NoirCon organiser Lou Boxer has dreamt up in terms of a program, I have no doubt it’ll be good, including new events and events that would have been held in previous cancelled versions of the program. So if you have any interest in noir at all and are able to make the time zone work for you, you should definitely register at this link.
I’ll be moderating a panel called ‘Lockdown Noir’ in which four great authors, Richie Narvaez, Scott Adlerberg, Nikki Dolson & Halley Stutton, will share their noir film/TV discoveries over the pandemic. The panel will take place 6.30pm, Friday October 21 EST, approximately 8.30am Saturday October 22 Melbourne time.
I hope to see some of you there.
