Desert Film Society

About

The Desert Film Society promotes the appreciation of film in the Coachella Valley by providing an unique opportunity to view the latest in art, international and cutting-edge independent cinema and educating members by providing a platform for discussion of the art of film and film craft. Since 2002, Desert Film Society has presented one-time screenings of award winning films from global festivals. These are new films not scheduled to play in local cinemas. Film is a very powerful voice in our culture today, and interacting among a community of film lovers promotes enhanced and developed appreciation for film. To better facilitate this for our members, we invite people who are involved in the creative processes of film-making to share their knowledge and to guide us in a deeper understanding of the many ways in which film influences our lives. An organized and vibrant film society signals to the professional film industry our support and appreciation for quality art house, global and independent film. The Desert Film Society is a California non-profit 501 (c)(3) Organization, with a Board of Directors who meet throughout the year. Since 2002, Desert Film Society has promoted the passion for world cinema in the Coachella Valley by providing Society members and guests an opportunity to view the latest in art, global and independent film and educating members by providing a platform for discussion of the art of film and film craft.
