Kristen Wiig, Jimmy Kimmel in Lineup For Palm Springs ShortFest

The Palm Springs International ShortFest & Short Film Market announced its lineup Thursday, screening June 16-22 at the Camelot Theatres in Palm Springs.

Among those featured in premieres are Kristen Wiig and Jimmy Kimmel in “Miss Famous,” executive produced by James Franco; Zachary Quinto in “The Future Perfect” and Kate Mara and Amber Tamblyn in “Almost Not Beautiful.”

“The overall quality of the films submitted to us this year was staggering, both in terms of sophisticated filmmaking technique and the diversity of the subject matter and storytelling styles,” said Darryl Macdonald, festival director. “The difficult part for us was narrowing the 3,500 submissions down to just 330 titles for the final festival line-up, given the wealth of exceptional work we watched.”

Other titles include “Eternal Princess,” directed by Katie Holmes, John Cusack in “Red Rider” and Ed Asner, Jonathan Demme, Matt Groening and Kevin Pollak in the documentary short “I Thought I Told You To Shut Up!”

ShortFest will showcase 330 films including 77 world premieres, 65 North American premieres and 19 U.S. Premieres. The selection of films for screening and competition features films from 51 countries. More than 3,000 of the festival submissions are available in the film market for industry attendees to view.

The complete line-up will be posted on www.psfilmfest.org on June 7 with the online box office launch on June 9.
