The 28th annual Palm Springs International Film Festival is one event you won't want to miss; the upcoming Festival runs from January 2-16, 2017. Over one hundred films from all over the world will be showcased along with many special events, from galas to celebrity appearances.

The Festival kicks off with its signature showpiece event and biggest fundraiser - the annual Black Tie Awards Gala on Monday, January 2. Here you have the opportunity to dine among A-list celebrities along with some of the industry's most important people, then attend the awards ceremony. The entire evening reflects the ambiance of old-style Hollywood glamour and glitz.

A popular two-day event that's been part of the Festival since 2015 is Books to Screen, which explores the many ways the written word - whether novels, comic books, literature, journalism, nonfiction - are transformed into or inspire films. The first day offers film screenings, and the second day is a symposium featuring conversations with writers and screenwriters who delve into the complexities of the book-to-screen world.

Another favorite is Talking Pictures, where writers and critics interview top celebrities. In the past, host writers and critics have included Scott Feinberg, Kenneth Turan and Peter Bart; participating celebrities included such notables as Matt Damon, Colin Firth, Naomi Watts and many more. 

The Film Festival offers many genres and sub-genres of films that you may not otherwise have an opportunity to see, from experimental and regional interests to animation and documentaries.
