For years, it’s been on our bucket list to attend Outfest Los Angeles LGBTQ Film Festival. And this year, it’s finally happening!
Stop us if you’ve heard this one before, but the iconic film fest will be available online (woohoo!) starting tomorrow.
As a nonprofit organization, Outfest relies on ticket sales as one of the major ways to support programming. This year it offers a $59.99 Festival pass that provides viewing access to all the films and panels, but the really cool part is you’ll get a free subscription to Outfest’s new streaming platform, Outfest Now, for the next year.
Catch the trailer below, view the link of all 160 available films here, plus the full lineup of the live stream programming at the end of this story.
See you (online) at the movies!
Price includes free one-year subscription to Outfest Now streaming service
