21st Annual
International Palm Springs Film Festival Dazzles the Red Carpet…

What an outstanding honoree list this year. If only the legendary Sonny Bono and former Mayor of Palm Springs could be here to see what his vision has become.

Presenting sponsor again this year, Cartier added elegance and panache to the red carpet.

“Entertainment Tonight’s” Mary Hart, the longest-running anchor of entertainment news once again hosted the show.
Harold Matzner, Festival Chairman was proud to announce that for the next two weeks, the world’s attention will turn to Palm Springs. “This show has grown in popularity, and has become one of the largest and most respected film events in North America.” It ranks right behind the Golden Globes in terms of aura, glamour and the amount of television and press it attracts.

Harold gave a special thanks to Jackie Lee and Jim Houston, for their limitless contributions as well as the Board of Directors for their tireless efforts which has made the festival what it is today!

Just when you think the party is over, the honorees, guests, and VIP’s head over to the Parker Hotel for the after party.

Hosted by Patrick Mundt.
