Just from the title, you may be asking yourself what the heck is Noirvember? It was started on November 1, 2010 by Marya Gates. It started as a way for her to catch up on the top Film Noir films, but has since grown into a month-long celebration of noir.
As she states on her Facebook page:
“It’s not a blogathon, just a celebration. Watch noir/talk about noir/write about noir/take noir-inspired photographs/read noir fiction, etc. Do whatever, as long as it’s inspired by noir (but try to watch a few films from the original noir era if you can!), then post about what you’re doing on any social media platform – just remember to use the hashtag #Noirvember! I’ll be retweeting the tag on Twitter (I’m @oldfilmsflicker) and I’ll be reblogging all posts on Tumblr into our official Tumblr: http://filmnoirandfemmefatales.tumblr.com/“
We decided the Classic Movie Treasures community needed to get in on the fun so we created the #NoirvemberMovieChallenge.
If you participated in our Horror Challenge in October, there is one BIG change. For the #NoirvemberMovieChallenge we are only using Twitter for the challenge as it was the most popular platform for players.
This year we are focusing solely on American Film Noir release between 1940 and 1959.
To participate in the #NoirvemberMovieChallenge
- the day – “Day 12” , the challenge “Favorite Poster Of A Film Noir” and an image, .gif, movie poster etc., it’s not required however it is more fun!
- 2 hashtags, #NoirvemberMovieChallenge and #Noirvember
We look forward to seeing all your Noirvember Movie Challenge responses. We hope to see you from Day 1 however, if you missed the first week or so, don’t despair, just start on whichever day you want. You don’t have to “play catch-up”.
If you need some inspiration, check out the Film Noir section of our movie database.
