The festival will close with “The Lost King,” and hold the World Premiere screening of “Shot in the Arm,” with director Scott Hamilton Kennedy and subject Neil deGrasse Tyson scheduled to attend.

The festival will screen 35 of the International Feature Film Oscar Submissions, and showcase films featuring Juliette Binoche, LeVar Burton, Eugenio Derbez, Colin Farrell, Jim Gaffigan, Luca Guadagino, Mia Hansen-Løve, Lasse Hallström, Sally Hawkins, Anna Kendrick, Udo Kier, Vicky Krieps, Eva Longoria, Lena Olin, Ray Romano, Tim Roth, Rhea Seehorn, Léa Seydoux, Paul Weitz, Olivia Wilde, Stephen Williams, Alex Wolff and more.

“We are beyond excited to welcome back our beloved audience and filmmakers in Palm Springs. We’re especially thrilled to be joined by all four leads of 80 For Brady. The film is brimming with joy and heart, and it’s a perfect film to kick off our 34th edition,” Artistic Director Lili Rodriguez said in a statement. “Our programmers have dedicated almost a year to scouting the world for the films that make up this edition. It is our most thematically diverse year yet and I don’t believe you’ll find two movies that are alike. From light entertainment for casual nights out to urgent commentaries that beg for post-screening conversation and beyond, the cinema is there to capture it all.”
