COVID-19 Safety Protocols

COVID-19 Warning
An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present.

The Palm Springs Film Society has one priority which is to ensure the health and safety of everyone involved with our event- guests, sponsors, media, honorees, vendors and staff. It's too early to tell exactly what precautions will be in place, however we continue to monitor the evolving health regulations. Depending on the COVID-19 conditions at the time of the event, proof of vaccination, testing and/or mask mandates may be required.  We will follow all COVID-19 related mandates applicable to our events. If the event is cancelled or you are unable to meet the procedures that have been put in place you will be issued a refund.

We will keep this page updated with the details.

All employees and volunteers must wear a face covering or mask. Theatergoers will be required to wear masks upon entry and while out of their seats.  Proof of vaccination or testing mandates may be required.


Advanced reservations for all guests, including passholders, may be required. Capacities in theaters may be reduced.


We have expanded the time between screenings to allow for enhanced cleaning procedures.  High-touch surfaces and common areas will be wiped down periodically with disinfectant.


Tickets sales will be available online or via phone to reduce the need to stand in line for tickets. Purchased tickets may be presented on your phone or printed at home to be scanned at time of entry. Limited walk-up box office hours will be scheduled for those needing additional assistance.

Hand sanitizer will be placed in easily accessible public areas and patrons will be encouraged to practice hand hygiene.


Employees are are required to wash hands frequently and patrons are encouraged to follow similar practices.


If you are experiencing a fever, cough, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell, or other symptoms that could be related to COVID-19, please stay home and we welcome you to join us again in the future.
