Founded in 1990 by then-Palm Springs Mayor Sonny Bono, the festival has grown into one of the largest in North America. Palm Springs’ festival is a global affair, offering U.S. moviegoers a rare look at the year’s best international films. Precursor to the Oscars with 136,000 visitors the festival is a great success for the desert city.
This year PrintB3 had a very special ancillary project to help promote Susan Bernard’s “Marilyn: Intimate Exposures” featuring her father’s photography of Marilyn Monroe and Norma Jean. The large format prints were produced on our OCE 550-XT flatbed printer on foamcore. The striking prints were exhibited throughout Palm Spring’s uptown design district.
“The Prince and the Showgirl,” the 1957 Monroe movie that provides the setting for current Oscar hopeful “My Week With Marilyn,” starring Williams as the cinema icon, will also be screened. Photographs from the book “Marilyn: Intimate Exposures” by Susan Bernard will be exhibited throughout Palm Spring’s uptown design district.
The lion’s share of our work for the Palm Springs International Film Festival is in photo backdrops. Step and Repeat walls printed in lengths up to 80 feet as seen in this clip, with 3 foot x 8 foot rigid panels mounted in a variety of formats, from free standing as seen in the entrance to the Palm Springs Convention Center, to wall mounts at the Palm Springs Art Museum. The color matches are critical matches. The photography and video is seen hundreds of millions times around the world. We’re looking forward to this summer’s Shortfest.
The Santa Barbra Film Festival is featured following the clip on the PSIFF red carpet , another PrintB3 project with Sean Pratt of the SBFF.
