ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding, and rewarding, programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Join us at one of our most popular film programs, as we spend eight nights in this charming desert city, enjoying the Palm Springs International Film Festival. Screen the latest international releases and documentaries – film productions that are in competition for Academy Award Nominations from worldwide studios – and hear commentary from directors, actors and other experts from the industry. Evenings offer free time for you to attend additional films and explore the festival on your own.


• View sixteen films, several with commentary from an actor or director offering an insider’s perspective.
• Engage in critiquing sessions that give you a chance to analyze and discuss what you saw.
• Receive ticket vouchers to view additional films on your own.
Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.
