The Arthur Lyons Film Noir Festival:

Founded in 2000 by the late mystery author and Palm Springs community leader Arthur Lyons, this unique festival features an eclectic mixture of landmark and obscure vintage movies from the classic film noir era. Laden with period post war cynicism, these glorious black and white films are laden with suspense, sexuality and crime portrayed from the perspective of the criminals.

Each year, the festival showcases the best of film noir accentuated by a scintillating array of movie stars who appear on stage for post screening Q&A discussions, autographs and book signings.

 

The American Documentary Film Festival:

The American Documentary Film Festival aims to be the largest documentary festival and market on the West Coast of the United States. Its objective is to promote a world vision of film as seen through the eyes of the filmmaker of whomever or whatever their subject matter may be in order to educate and entertain the audience.

All of the Palm Springs Cultural Center’s Film events take place at the Camelot Theatres in Palm Springs (2300 E Baristo Rd., Palm Springs, CA 92262) where it is possible to see and hear films better than virtually any other movie house in Southern California.
