Cinema Diverse!

Cinema Diverse!

Thursday, 19 September 2019 until Sunday, 29 September 2019

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 forum that presents lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender cinema from around the world. We bring together film artists, film lovers and industry professionals in a celebration of motion pictures that reflect, inform, enrich and often transform lives.

Cinema Diverse is a program of the Palm Springs Cultural Center, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to advancing education, to nurturing community-wide participation in the cultural arts, and to sponsoring scholarship awards for deserving individuals. For more information, please visit http://www.psculturalcenter.org

Films and videos should be of interest to lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgendered people. We will consider narrative, documentary, experimental and/or animated films and videos (features and shorts). Online submissions or DVDs can be accepted for viewing.

Festival prefers not to exhibit in DVD format.
