The Palm Springs International Film Society strives for a world in which enlightenment, knowledge and tolerance prevail. We believe film as an art form has the power to bridge cultures and illuminate the universality of the human experience. The Film Society enthusiastically pursues its artistic and public service goals to enrich, to educate, to entertain, to initiate cultural dialogue and to celebrate cinematic excellence in any language.
Our principal objectives encompass promoting film to an ever-widening audience as a powerful medium that inspires creativity, encourages introspection, and compels exploration. To realize this vision, the Film Society provides an extensive forum for multicultural exchange through cinema in the Coachella Valley and beyond. In addition to our Festivals, a big part of our vision is realized through our Educational Programs, Public Programs, and Membership.
The Palm Springs International Film Festival and the Palm Springs International ShortFest are presented under the auspices of the Palm Springs International Film Society and manifest the organization’s mission by nurturing and encouraging new filmmaking talent, honoring the great masters of world cinema and providing audiences with a unique opportunity to engage in an appreciation of and a dialogue about the art of cinema as it is represented around the world.
