The 11-day festival will showcase a program of over 170 titles from more than 25 countries that includes narratives, documentaries, shorts & an episodic showcase. Highlights among the films featured include the world premiere of “Truth Be Told” a feature doc which gives a probing, heartfelt & often humorous exploration of the relationship between the LGBTQ community & the Black church featuring interviews with Billy Porter, Meagan Good, Cedric The Entertainer, David Mann, Tamela Mann & Kev on Stage. Mike Dougherty, Outfest’s Director of Programming stated, “The depth of the talent & the boundless creativity we saw in the work we reviewed this year speaks to how wonderfully gifted LGBTQ+ artists are. One festival could not hope to contain all the fantastic films available from our community this year but rest assured Outfest Los Angeles will be bursting with captivating cinema & we hope to continue the celebration year-round.” The festival will open with Aristotle & Dante Discover the “Secrets of the Universe” directed by Aitch Alberto & will close with “Chasing Chasing Amy” directed by Sav Rodgers.
