Looking for the red carpet treatment without leaving the Coachella Valley? Join us for a spirited pre-Academy Awards event, sure to turn Oscar green with envy.
We'll be rolling out the red carpet starting at 5:30 p.m., while the program will begin promptly at 6 p.m. View and discuss film clips for this year's nominees! Learn about the Academy voting process! The party will also feature trivia, take-home ballots and, of course, popcorn.
Speakers include Palm Springs International Film Society Membership & Educational Programs director Nikki Gordon, along with producer/development executive John Schimmel, screenwriter Joshua Malkin, and writer/critic Tod Goldberg, all faculty from our low-residency Master of Fine Arts program in Creative Writing and Writing for the Performing Arts.
