Celebrating the best of British and international crime fiction, Hull Noir plays host to the prestigious Iceland Noir on their bi-annual travels from the festival’s home city of Reykjavik.
Highlighting Hull’s crime fiction heritage from GET CARTER author, Ted Lewis, to the current crop of crime and noir writers working in the city, the festival forges new connections and examines the themes of contemporary crime fiction.
Hull Noir Ted Lewis Film Season
In partnership with Hull Independent Cinema, Hull Noir presents a short season of exceptional crime films which relate to iconic crime fiction writer Ted Lewis. The gangster classic GET CARTER (1971) will be screened in a mini-series with John Boorman’s influential POINT BLANK (1967), based on Donald Westlake’s hardboiled thriller, The Hunter; and Shane Meadows’ uncompromising small town revenge story, DEAD MAN'S SHOES (2004).
