Now in its 40th year, Outfest is a premier entertainment, media, and arts organization widely considered the best for queer cinema and television, as well as home to several notable educational, mentorship, and film restoration programs. Outfest also manages the first free-for-all, ad-free, streaming platform dedicated to queer and trans stories, The OutMuseum. Outfest hopes to help shift the narrative and cultural landscape of LGBTQIA+ stories and restore the future of entertainment for our community.
Kevin Bacon plays Owen Whistler in this slasher horror film set at an LGBTQIA+ conversion camp. Several queer campers, led by iron-willed Jordan (Theo Germaine) and Alexandria (Quei Tann), join Whistler for a week of programming intended to “help them find a new sense of freedom”. As the camp’s methods become increasingly more psychologically unsettling, the campers must work together to protect themselves. When an unidentified killer starts claiming victims, things get even more dangerous.
