Cinema Diverse 2016

NINGCinDivheader

The Annual Palm Springs Cinema Diverse Film Festival will run September 22-25 at Camelot Theatres and The Desert Cinemas.

Cathedral City’s Desert Cinema will become the valley’s second theatre to screen films as part of Cinema Diverse: The Palm Springs LGBTQ Film Festival, marking another record year of growth for the niche film festival.

“We are thrilled to be working with Cathedral City, and in cooperation with D’Place Entertainment to make this possible,” said Michael C. Green, Managing Director of Cinema Diverse, and its parent nonprofit, The Palm Springs Cultural Center. “For the past two years, we’ve used all three of the theatres at the Camelot. We were looking to grow, and given the commitment that Cathedral City has made to the LGBTQ community, this seemed a logical step.”

“Expanding Cinema Diverse to include Cathedral City is an exciting milestone for the film festival and our city,” stated Cathedral City Mayor Stan Henry.  “This brings another exceptional entertainment choice for our residents as part of the growing list of annual events in Cathedral City. The LGBT community makes up a significant portion of our population, and Cinema Diverse creates a Fall counterbalance to our popular LGBT Days celebration in the Spring.”

Cinema Diverse: The Palm Springs LGBTQ Film Festival celebrates its ninth year this year, opening on Thursday, September 22nd and running through Sunday, September 25th. The festival is one of three niche film festivals operated by The Palm Springs Cultural Center, which was founded in 2007 by local philanthropists Ric and Rozene Supple.

“Cinema Diverse and the Certified Farmers’ Market were our first two programs, said Rozene Supple, Founder and CoChair of The Palm Springs Cultural Center. “That first year, we had Cinema Diverse in July and opened the Farmers’ Market in the Fall. We decided to reevaluate the timing and duration of Cinema Diverse and move it to the third week of September in year two. Since then, it has proven to be a real winner for us, along with theArthur Lyons Film Noir Festival and the American Documentary Film Festival and Film Fund.”

Cinema Diverse: The Palm Springs LGBTQ Film Festival

will screen at the following two locations:

Camelot Theatres – located at 3200 Baristo Road in Palm Springs.

“Desert Cinema is D’Place”  located in Downtown Cathedral City across from City Hall at 68510 E Palm Canyon Dr.

January 23 – Camelot Theatres – Burt’s Buzz – Burt’s Buzz takes an intimate look at the world of Burt Shavitz, the face and co-founder of Burt’s Bees, exploring his fascinating and utterly unique life. Wise and wry, ornery and opinionated, the reclusive Shavitz is committed to living off the land and keeping true to his humble beginnings despite his celebrity status. The film chronicles Burt’s life as a photographer, beekeeper, and brand spokesman, following his complicated relationship with the company, his fans, and the world around him. Exposing the collision between business and personal values, Burt’s Buzz is a compelling and fascinating portrait of this highly idiosyncratic pioneer, and a revealing study of what it means to be a living icon. Running time: 88 min.

What they find is truly shocking. Running time: 75 min.

From the plastic production to the ocean in which so many of these bottles end up, this inspiring documentary trails the path of the bottled water industry and the communities which were the unwitting chips on the table. A powerful portrait of the lives affected by the bottled water industry, this revelatory film features those caught at the intersection of big business and the public’s right to water. Running time: 76 min.

April 23 – Camelot Theatres – Bikes vs. Cars – The bicycle, an amazing tool for change. Activists and cities all over the world are moving towards a new system. But will the economic powers allow it?

The film is a testament to the transformative power of music and the resilience of the human spirit. Running time: 84 min.

June 25 – Leisure Center Pavilion – Inside the Garbage of the World – While you may not directly feel the impact of garbage while going about your day to day life, it’s quite literally choking the life out of our ecosystem, and the situation is getting worse with each passing day.

July 23 – Leisure Center Pavilion – The Starfish Throwers – Worlds apart, a five-star chef, a twelve year-old girl, and a retired schoolteacher discover how their individual efforts to feed the poor ignite a movement in the fight against hunger. This documentary tells the tale of these remarkable individuals and the unexpected challenges they face. Despite being constantly reminded that hunger is far too big for one person to solve, they persevere and see their impact ripple further than their individual actions. Running time: 83 min.

August 27 – Leisure Center Pavilion – Switch – Every energy resource — fossil, nuclear and renewable — is undergoing profound changes. And overall, we’re gradually shifting from coal and oil to the energies of tomorrow. This sweeping transition is the subject of Switch . But rather than advocate for how it should happen, Switch travels the world to discover how it most likely will happen. Switch is also about a changing energy conversation. Today, it’s polarized and unproductive. Switch focuses on practical realities and encourages a balanced understanding. Finally, Switch is about changing the way we use energy, to realize the many economic and environmental benefits of efficiency. Running time: 90 min.
