The spectacular Palm Springs International Film Fest (or PSIFF as it's known by it's awesome-to-pronounce acronym) is back this January from the 1st to the 11th. Under the programming guidance of David Ansen who is shifting gears from the LA Film Fest, this could be one of the best. Read Deadline's coverage here.
Platinum passes are already sold out but other levels are available from the society, here.
As for lodging, Palms at Park has two sparking 5 Bedroom villas ready for artists or fans alike, combinable to form a 10 Bedroom private compound. Get those reservations in soon because the town is filling up early this year.
