The film fest returns this year, its 22nd, with an expected crowd of attendees numbering some 100,000 plus. With a mix of brand new films, other film fest winners and cutting edge foreign films there is an endless variety of films to enjoy.
Award recipients have already started to be named for the Gala black tie awards event to be held during the Festival. Carey Mulligan and Jennifer Lawrence are slated to receive awards for break out performance and rising star awards respectively. Past honorees at the event have included Jennifer Hudson, Dakota Fanning, Scarlett Johansson. Attendees and other honorees have include such stars as Clint Eastwood, Leonardo DiCaprio and Jeff Bridges.
Not only is the film festival fun but it gives Palm Springs a chance to shine in the spotlight of international media attention. Be sure to get your tickets early as many showings will sell out. Got to the festival website for more information and ticket reservations.
