Before Sundance kicks off, the 20th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival gets underway Jan 8-19 with a stellar lineup of fare: 209 films considered to be the best in international and American cinema. At least 18 of the films feature strong LGBT content.The festival has become known for giving audiences access to foreign films submitted for Oscar consideration and this year they will not disappoint by showing 50 of the 67 films submitted in the Best Foreign Language Film category. In addition, both Sean Penn and Gus Van Sant are being honored for their work in Milk during the festival's opening night gala on Tuesday, January 6. Also being honored are Ron Howard, Clint Eastwood, Anne Hathaway, Amy Adams and Dakota Fanning.
