Palm Springs International Down Syndrome Film Festival

May 3 @ 6:00 pm - May 5 @ 6:00 pm

The 1st Annual Palm Springs International Down Syndrome Film Festival will be held from May 3-May 5 at the beautiful Palm Springs Cultural Center.

Over 16 features, shorts and documentaries from the U.S. and around the globe will be screened during the three day festival.


The beautiful painting above was created by Ezekiel Jeremiah Cuevas when he was just 2 1/2 years old! His parents, Mark and Yadira Regla-Cuevas created Ezekiel’s Gift of Love: Coachella Valley Down Syndrome Foundation in 2017. We are proud to be partnering with this amazing family and supporting their inspiring work! A portion of all net profits from the Festival will go to support the many programs of the Foundation.
The Filmmakers’ Gallery:
Steven Roche and Paul Belsito are award-winning filmmakers, who have also produced over 200 film and television screening events and book signings since launching their Filmmakers’ Gallery in Long Beach, CA in 2012. Down Syndrome visibility and advocacy mean a great deal to them, as their nephew Ryan
Landry is a multiple Special Olympics medal winner and has Down Syndrome. Dear friend and Festival Ambassador, actress and advocate Jamie Brewer, was on 4 seasons of the EMMY and Golden Globe Award-winning smash AMERICAN HORROR STORY; and she was the first model with Down Syndrome to walk the catwalk during New York Fashion Week in 2015
