Six movies are on tap for Outfest’s seventh day. The annual gay and lesbian film festival is keeping movie-lovers busy catching up with the latest offerings of documentaries, drama, comedies and shorts.
Today’s programs are being held at two different venues:
- Directors Guild of America (DGA) theatre (7920 Sunset Blvd. at Fairfax Avenue)
- John Anson Ford Amphitheatre (2580 Cahuenga Blvd.)
Same day tickets can be purchased at the venue box office one hour prior to screening time. Advance tickets for screenings happening later in the festival can be purchased in the DGA lobby.
A complete directory of the films offered is available on the Outfest website, but below is a quick rundown of some of the best playing today:
