IIFC's schedule overlaps with the much larger Palm Springs International Film Festival in Palm Springs. Savage has said scheduling the festival in January helps the local economy during the slow season.[1]

The festival was the inspiration for the Glendale International Film Festival, which started in 2014.[4]

At the closing ceremonies of the 2017 IIFC in the Rustic Theater, actress Anne Archer was a participant and presenter.[5]

The 2018 IIFC runs from March 6 through 11. Erika Christensen is scheduled to co-host the awards ceremony.[6]
