Stills from Blancanieves, a silent, monochromatic re-invention of the Grimm fairytale Snow White by director Pablo Berger. The film is set in 1920s Spain and brings to life a gored matador, a wicked nurse, a band of dwarves and a phosphorescent poisonous apple. Blancanieves breaks its mesmerizing message in a champagne bottle over the hull of the Palm Springs International Film Festival tomorrow at the festival’s opening night. Standby tickets are available at the door only. Join us afterward for Afterfest — running throughout the festival — where you can catch late night festivities, good food and some tipsy armchair film criticism by the hot tub. We still have some rooms open this weekend, and you can try your hand at winning two nights from Kiehl’s — who are also working with us to support the Desert AIDS Project during the festival — at Ace Palm Springs if you enter by noon PST Thursday. ¡Olé!
