The 25 Coolest Film Festivals in the World, 2019

MovieMaker Coolest Film Festival Festivals

Palm Springs International Film Festival 

January 2-13, 2020 / Palm Springs, California / psfilmfest.org

Described by a panelist as a “rubberneckers’ fantasia” where celebrities come to “practice their charmingly off-the-cuff, improvisational teary acceptance speeches,” this film festival is more than just a dry run for Oscar night. It offers a curated, mature programming slate: 12 days of narrative, documentary and short subjects from over 60 countries courtesy of (until earlier this year) Artistic Director and moviemaker Michael Lerman. Our panelist summarizes the task of the curation team: to deliver an engaging, inspiring program while also “throwing parties in air museums.”

    The Artis Center in Naples, Fl is really extraordinary. It’s the hub of performing arts, music, and film in Southwest Florida. It’s the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and Boston Symphony all in one – with art and entertainment for all ages. One of the things that impressed me most was the cultural campus for children, with programs for art and music in the form of summer camps, infusing art and music (and the importance of it) at a young age.
