Palm Springs Film Festival Hosts Students

Two hundred DATA students from Cathedral City High School joined other high school students from around the valley as special guests of the Palm Springs International Film Festival Wednesday Jan. 6, 2010 at Palm Springs High School.
Coordinated by PSIFF Education coordinator Deborah Dearth, students saw a screening of "Samson and Delilah" in the morning, a story about a young aboriginal couple facing cultural hurdles.
After lunch hosted by Chipotle, the students watched "The Most Dangerous Man in America; Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers." "Most Dangerous" co-producer Judith Ehrlich (left) participated in a question and answer session with students following the viewing.



  1. This was a good trip, both movies were quite entertaining and interesting in my opinion.

  2. I remember this trip! One of the videos really made and impression on me. However the other one kind of dragged on. Either way it was a great experience and I'm looking forward to next years festival.

  3. I thought this trip was really fun i learned a lot from what i saw and what these people do to make there film the best.

  4. The film festival was cool, and it's a good chance to get a peek at what kind of movies other countries are coming up with.
