The Importance of LGBTQ Film Festivals
LGBTQ films and film festivals are critical to every local community. It helps those within the gay community remember where they came from, who they are, and who they can be. But even more important, they have the power to change the lives and attitudes of people outside the community. LGBTQ filmmakers, and the stories they tell through movies, advance our efforts to gain equal rights. They also introduce our community and others to a world that has heretofore never known us.

In 2008, Cinema Diverse was born. Premiering with only 15 films in 2008, Cinema Diverse now has a lineup of 91 films. Celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, the festival is dedicated to presenting the best in LGBTQ cinema. While last year addressed the divide between mainstream and religion, this year addresses the treatment of the LGBT community. With the current gay and lesbian population in Palm Springs estimated to be seven times the national average, a concentration even greater than that of San Francisco, Palm Springs is a fitting location for this annual event.
