The 2022 Palm Springs International Film Festival will require all attendees (pass holders and ticket holders), volunteers, staff, guests, sponsors, media, and vendors to show valid proof of full vaccination in order to enter Festival venues and events. To keep all patrons as safe as possible, no exceptions to this policy will be allowed. 

For the Film Festival, each person attending will be required to show their vaccination card and photo ID in person and sign a waiver. The person will then be issued a wristband, which will need to be worn for the duration of the festival visit.   If the band is removed or lost, they will need to go through the process again. Specific details on the vaccination verification process will be provided as the festival draws closer.

The Palm Springs International Film Festival (PSIFF) is one of the largest film festivals in North America, welcoming 136,000 attendees last year for its lineup of new and celebrated international features and documentaries. The Festival is also known for its annual Film Awards Gala, a glamorous, black-tie event attended by 2,500.
