CINEMA DIVERSE: The Palm Springs LGBTQ Film Festival is dedicated to advancing and further strengthening our diverse gay community through the establishment of a world-class film festival that presents lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender cinema from around the world.
Each year, we invite filmmakers, writers, directors, producers, actors, film artists, film lovers, distributors and other industry professionals to join us in Palm Springs for an exciting celebration of the motion pictures that reflect, inform, enrich and often transform lives.
We believe LGBTQ films and LGBTQ film festivals are critical to our local community, and to the world community, because they tell stories that remind us of where we came from, who we are, and who we can be. They tell stories that not only inform and transform those within our community, but also have the power to change the lives and attitudes of people outside our community.
LGBTQ Film-makers, and the stories they tell through the movies they make, empower our community, advance our efforts to gain equal rights, and often introduce us to a world that has heretofore never known us.
