The Palm Springs Cultural Center presents the Palm Springs Cannabis Film Festival & Summit.
The festival runs April 19-22 at the Palm Springs Cultural Center / Camelot Theatres in Palm Springs and will include a variety of films and educational panel discussions on everything from the impact of cannabis on pets and children to how regulations affect the market.
With an ever-increasing diversity of people proclaiming its many virtues - from the fun and recreational to the medicinal, throughout college dorms and nursing homes - cannabis culture is evolving into the mainstream. Yet it’s not without debate. Social attitudes, legal opinions, political agendas and medical research often collide. This new film festival and summit takes on the debate with a progressive attitude towards eroding stereotypes and clichés to discover the life-enhancing potential of this remarkable yet controversial plant.
The Film Festival & Summit Talks will include international feature films, shorts and documentaries as well as speakers, panel discussions, educational programs and social gatherings. The event will be a platform for the state and municiple governmet, medical researchers and practitioners, legal experts, business leaders, social welfare organizatins, culinary professionals, cannabis growers, artists and vendors, and the general public to gather together to learn, network and effect positive change. What makes this event unique is this is where arts and culture become an access point to the current discussion.
