Mod Mansions offers the finest Palm Springs Vacation rentals for anyone coming to town for Cinema Diverse.

Now celebrating its 10th anniversary, Cinema Diverse is holding its Palm Springs LGBTQ Film Festival from September 21-24, and this year it's followed by a special Best of the Fest from September 29-30.

As part of the 10th anniversary celebration, Cinema Diverse is adding a new segment called WebOUT, featuring two special programs by well-known arts blogger Kevin M. Thomas on some of his favorite web series. Thomas selected about half of his favorites from Revry, a streaming device that features exclusively LGBTQ entertainment.

At the film festival, Revry will be debuting the world premiere of its new comedy "Persianality", created by Matthew Mouriel, who will be appearing at the screening in character. Revry will also hold panel discussions with its CEO, Damian Pelliccione.

Several different packages are available to attend the festival. Among the selections at the Camelot Theatres will be collections of shorts such as "Life Can Be Tough At Times", delving into the more serious side of things; if you love horror, "Come a Haunting" is for you, with funny horror shorts crafted through the LGBTQ lens; enjoy a laugh with comedy shorts at "Happy Days Are Here"; immerse yourself in intrigue with "I Dream In Another Language", a film featuring a linguist researching a nearly forgotten language in the Mexican jungle, revealing a secret past and a forbidden gay love story. 

Then enjoy more diverse selections at the Best of the Fest at the Mary Pickford Theatre. More unique selections await you with the musical romance "Something Like Summer" about a secret high school relationship between two boys who reunite years later with complicated results. The film "Weirdos" is shot in black and white, underscored by a hot 1970s soundtrack, and featuring two teens running away from home and entering a world of discovery about themselves. 

These are just a few brief glimpses into the wonderful entertainment representing just about every genre and taste. You can order tickets through the Cinema Diverse website and read more about the festivities, see photos from previous years, or even make a donation.
