“Until we get past this pandemic, we all need to do our part so that we can once again enjoy what we love. For us, it’s the feeling of community of being together in a theater enjoying a film with others and honoring the artists who put all their heart and soul into creating their passion project and sharing it so that we can see it on the big screen, ”according to the Palm Springs Film Society.

The Palm Springs International Film Festival is scheduled for January 6-17, with the Film Awards gala kicking off the opening day of the festivities.
