Cinema Diverse Film Festival Sept 22-25th
Cinema Diverse – September 22-25
Ever since Mayor Sonny Bono launched the Palm Springs International Film Festival in 1989, the city’s cinematic events have steadily blossomed in size and stature. Now, Palm Springs’ calendar is overflowing with more than a dozen unique film festivals annually.
A notable local cinematic success stories is our LGBT film festival, Cinema Diverse. Launched in 2008 by the then newly-formed Palm Springs Cultural Center, in five short years Cinema Diverse more than doubled its number of screenings. Last year’s festival hit an all-time record for audience attendance with more than 5,000 movie lovers enjoying 25 feature films and 35 shorts reflecting the depth and breadth of the LGBT experience.
