“Movie theaters were among the hardest hit during the pandemic, but as a signal that it’s time to return indoors the 27th annual Palm Springs International ShortFest will hold all of its screenings in-theatre, June 22-28.
The festival will screen 49 curated programs showcasing 295 films including 32 world premieres, 13 international premieres, 46 North American premieres and 22 U.S. premieres.
