The Best of the American Film Institute Comes to Palm Springs 


Seven critically acclaimed films from AFI FEST 2008 come to the Camelot Theatres in Palm Springs! And one of them is the movie I'm dying to see, "Doubt" starring the great Meryl Streep!

Here's the press release:

The American Film Institute (AFI) and Camelot Theatres will once again join forces to present the ninth annual "AFI PALM SPRINGS SHOWCASE." Seven award-winning and critically acclaimed films from the 2008 AFI Los Angeles International Film Festival (AFI FEST) will be screened beginning Friday, November 14 and continuing through Sunday, November 16, 2008. AFI FEST Artistic Director Rose Kuo said of the program, “We are honored to present these diverse and innovative films from emerging talent as well as masters at our annual showcase in the Camelot Theatres.”

The seven films selected range from DOUBT, directed by John Patrick Shanley, who brings his Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning play to the screen, to Director Erick Zonca’s JULIA, a story about an alcoholic who kidnaps a child, starring Academy Award winner Tilda Swinton.

AFI FEST presented by Audi, is the longest-running film festival in Los Angeles and one of the most influential film festivals in North America. Each year the Festival presents one of the world's most anticipated showcases of international film, demonstrating AFI's commitment to celebrating the art form. This year, a portion of the proceeds from the Palm Springs Showcase event will benefit the Palm Springs Cultural Center.
