    Palm Springs International Film Festival Film Awards

THURSDAY, JANUARY 2, 2020

The bright red carpet, shimmering gowns, sharp tuxedos, dazzling diamonds, the thrilling pop of flashbulbs, and of course the world's biggest stars... The Palm Springs International Film Festival's signature showpiece event - and by far our biggest fundraiser - is the annual Film Awards. 

This dazzling celebration of Hollywood's Academy Award Contenders kicks off Awards season each year as the Palm Springs International Film Festival rolls out the red carpet and welcomes the hottest industry players, A-list celebrities, and Palm Springs community leaders to an elegant dinner and awards ceremony.   Year after year, the most buzzed-about names on the awards trail come to experience the unrivaled Palm Springs hospitality that creates an intimate event far removed from the frenzy of other awards shows. Here, Hollywood heavyweights settle in to share war stories, old friendships are rekindled, and new professional relationships are born over gourmet food and cocktails. It's a true testament to the Gala's charm that so many A-listers return year after year!
