Palm Springs International Film Festival Announces 2024 Lineup



The Palm Springs International Film Festival has announced its 2024 lineup.

Held by the Palm Springs International Film Society, the PSIFF aims to spotlight and celebrate a range of global films. The 35th annual festival’s opening night will host the U.S. premiere of Thea Sharrock’s “Wicked Little Letters” on Jan. 5. The British black comedy mystery centers on two neighbors who find themselves plagued with obscene letters. Sharrock will be in attendance.

PSIFF’s closing night will feature a screening of the comedy “Ex-Husbands,” which follows Peter Pearce (Griffin Dunne), a father who jets off to Tulum where his two sons, played by James Norton and Miles Heizer, are at his oldest son’s bachelor party. Noah Pritzker, who serves as writer and director, will attend as will stars Dunne and Heizer.

On Jan. 4 and Jan. 5, PSIFF will host its Talking Pictures program, featuring screenings of “American Fiction” with star Jeffrey Wright, “Barbie” with director Greta Gerwig and “Killers of the Flower Moon” with writer Eric Roth. Festival attendees can also anticipate the world premieres of Adam Breier’s “All About the Lefkoviches,” Cady Voge’s “All We Carry” and Christopher Jones’s “Bad Faith” at the festival, among others. There will be a selection of South Korean films highlighted such as “The Handmaiden,” “Train to Busan” and “Memories of Murder.”

“Sprawling in scope, this year’s lineup spotlights programming from both international and domestic communities, including first-time filmmaking from American stars, impactful documentaries from abroad, and the very best in contemporary cinema for our Coachella Valley audience,” said Lili Rodriguez, PSIFS’s artistic director.
