The Film Awards is our annual Board of Director's fundraising event. By making a donation to this fund you are not purchasing a seat to the event.
We are committed to sharing and celebrating the power film with our audiences, our neighbors and the students of the Coachella Valley. Your passion fuels that commitment while your donations help to underwrite the cost of year-round programming in our community and dynamic, film-based educational opportunities for middle and high school students.
The Palm Springs International Film Society produces the Palm Springs International Film Festival (PSIFF) every January, and Palm Springs ShortFest in June. In addition to curating the best in international cinema, PSIFF has come to be known as the first stop on the road to the Academy Awards® and our Oscar®-qualifying ShortFest is the largest short film festival and market in North America. Our festivals and year-round programs manifest our organization's mission by nurturing and encouraging new filmmaking talent, honoring the great masters of world cinema, and expanding audience horizons.
