A conversation with Lili Rodriguez about 2018 Palm Springs International Film Festival


The Palm Springs International Film Festival is one of the largest film festivals in North America, welcoming over 135,000 attendees each year for its lineup of new and celebrated international features and documentaries.  The Festival is also known for its annual Film Awards Gala, honoring the best achievements of the filmic year by a celebrated list of talents.  Produced by the Palm Springs International Film Society, the Festival offers 14 days of events and film screenings featuring over 180 films.

To learn more about the 2018 Palm Springs International Film Festival, we had a video interview with Lili Rodriguez, International Festival’s Director of Programming.

Lili Rodriguez is a proud Coachella Valley native and year-round local. She studied film studies and art history and worked as a film projectionist and in advertising before joining the PSIFF team. She’s been with the festival for four years now and also serves as the Festival Director for PSIFF’s sister short film festival, ShortFest, in June.
