the The Palm Springs International Shortfest-Festival of Short Films and Film Market
canceled but films will be shown on video from June 16 through 22, 2020
the Newport Beach International Festival rescheduled to run from August 6 through 13, 2020.
the Palm Springs Film Noir Festival rescheduled to run from December 7 through 10, 2020.
All of these are great festivals that show independent feature,
short, and documentary films. You can meet the filmmakers, attend some educational seminars, and make some new friends.
