Films


This year’s Festival carries on the tradition, introducing debut works by nearly 50 gifted new directors, offering a broad array of award-winning films from every corner of the globe (including 45 of this year’s official Foreign Language Academy Award® submissions) and highlighting the work of established masters of world cinema.

While international in scope and vision, the Festival has always been local in flavor, encompassing the same sense of openness, the same welcoming embrace and the same laid-back feel that Palm Springs itself offers to all who come here. Perfect, then, that as the city celebrates its 75th anniversary, this event which has come to help define it celebrates its own Silver Anniversary, and bids you… Welcome.

Let the films begin!

Tickets go on sale December 23 for members of the Palm Springs International Film Society; and General Public sales begin December 26.
