“The Board of the Palm Springs International Film Festival wishes to extend our deep gratitude to Windermere Real Estate Southern California for their continued commitment to sustaining the spectacular success of our film festival,” said Chairman Harold Matzner. “A critical part of why we succeed is because of the support of local businesses like Windermere, who understand the necessity of sponsoring important special events that not only stimulate and grow our local economy, but also the prestige of Palm Springs as a world famous destination, like no place else. I applaud Windermere for their outstanding community citizenship over the past decade.”
