Palm Spring Film Festival

All the world’s a stage.
— William Shakespeare


Since the Golden Age of film, Palm Springs has been a favorite destination of Hollywood as a place to relax and enjoy quiet respite from the A-list lifestyle. But there is one time of year when the stars flock here seeking the spotlight — when the Palm Springs International Film Festival is once again the center of the film world. 

From January 4-15, 2024, the festival will celebrate the best films of the past year, screen world premieres from renowned directors and actors, and honor those who have devoted their life to the art and craft of filmmaking. With tickets now on sale, film fans are able to secure their spot to attend screenings, award ceremonies and red carpet events.

Now is also the time to secure your accommodation and Parker Palm Springs, the best 5-star resort in Palm Springs, is the star attraction. The secret hideaway for Hollywood royalty for decades, our secluded 13-acre estate feels right out of a film set and is the perfect stage for your time at the festival. Bold, whimsical, and private, we offer three stunning swimming pools, the on-property spa emporium Palm Springs Yacht Club, award-winning dining and cocktails, and a sense of fun and playfulness that allows you to truly relax between your red carpet events.

Once owned by the legendary ‘singing cowboy’ Gene Autry, and later media-mogul Merv Griffin, Parker Palm Springs has a storied history of welcoming the film world from Hollywood and beyond. Today, that history is reflected both in terms of design and the incredible art throughout the property. Our hotel also boasts some of the most distinct and memorable event space in Palm Springs. From intimate affairs to larger parties, both indoors and out, your options at Parker Palm Springs are unrivaled. 

In terms of accommodation, there are choices for every member of the cast. The touchstone of our estate is the Gene Autry Residence, a free-standing mid-century modern structure with its own lawn, private patio, sauna, and even a screening room. From Garden Suites and Poolside Rooms to Private Villas, every room is curated with features and unique design touches to satisfy any Diva. 

Of all the events during the festival, the Palm Springs Film Awards are the most prestigious and glamorous. From stunning gowns and tuxedos amidst the flashbulbs on the red carpet to a galaxy of movie stars and famed directors, the glitz and glamor of the evening is unmatched.

After a day of premieres and autograph signings, the tranquil vibes of Parker Palm Springs are the perfect elixir to help you unwind. A delicious meal and a great cocktail, stories about your day with friends old and new, and a luxurious room mean that come tomorrow’s call time, you will be ready to light up the world with your smile once again.
