The 21st Palm Springs Film Festival concludes today with its awards luncheon and wrap party tonight. The Palm Springs Film Festival Mercedes-Benz Audience Award  went to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo which sold out its single screening during the first weekend. Film was the most buzzed about feature because of its early sell-out.

Darryl MacDonald announced that the festival again broke it previous attendance records proving less is more with 189 films screened from 69 countries. During previous years the festival had screened as many as 50 more titles but this year with fewer films they had the opportunity to repeat more films to suit audience demand.

The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers won the Audience Award for documentary feature. Involuntary from Sweden won the FIPRESCI Award for Best Foreign Language Film of the Year.

The New Voices/New Visions Jury selected  A Brand New Life for its Best New Feature award.

More awards winners and photos in an update later today.
