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.”

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

Even if previously viewed or perhaps even enjoyed seeing the world premiere of this film during Modernism Week 2010, it will seem as though you’re seeing it for the first time as this visually stunning film has been completely re-mastered for re-release.
During the 1950s, architect William Krisel designed thousands of mass-produced tract homes in Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley and thus played a key role in establishing the desert modernism of the area.
Since then, over the course of his sixty-year career, Krisel has brought ‘modernism to the masses,’ designing more than 40,000 individual housing units across the country. Krisel’s influential work has become synonymous with mid-20th century Southern Californian design.
The documentary explores his life and work, including his roots in 1930s China, his ground-breaking designs for modern living and interviews with scholars, his contemporaries and family. “I’m a firm believer that good modern design can make your life happier, more productive and more enjoyable,” says Krisel.
Following the screening, there will be a Q&A and, ticketed separately, a VIP reception upstairs in the Camelot Café. Schedule permitting, Mr.Krisel is hoping to attend this very special evening. Film and reception ticket includes a two-disc set of the original film, valued at $40.00 retail.
A film by Jake Gorst. Executive Producers: Jill A. Wiltse & H. Kirk Brown III. Producer: Heather Purcell and Design on Screen, a Denver-based nonprofit dedicated to producing, preserving and promoting high-quality films on architecture and design.

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.

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.

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 .
