About the show

The bright red carpet, shimmering gowns, sharp tuxedos, dazzling diamonds, the thrilling pop of flashbulbs, and of course the world's biggest stars... all the classic glitz and glamour that make the movies magical can be found right here at the Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala.The Awards Gala raises more than $1 million in funding for the Palm Springs International Film Society.

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!
