The Film Festival and ShortFest are presented by the Film Society under our mission of nurturing new filmmaking talent, honoring the great masters of film, and providing audiences with an appreciation of world cinema.


The Palm Springs International Film Society presents Educational Programs that bring students into the world of cinema with engaging opportunities and in-depth experiences in the classroom, in our offices, and at our Festivals.


Members enjoy exclusive invitations to pre-release screenings of major motion pictures throughout the year, a sneak peek into PSIFF at the highly anticipated annual Member Preview Night, Early Bird Box Office access to our Festivals, and much more.
