Thank You For #Outfest40!

Thank You For One of Our Most Successful
Outfest LA LGBTQ+ Film Festivals Yet!

We had a blast last night celebrating the final day of the 2022 Outfest Los Angeles LGBTQ Film Festival with the world premiere of They/Them! This has been a truly amazing year for Outfest LA and we are so glad we could share it with our community. 40 years is a long time to run a festival, so when we say that this one was one for the history books we are not joking around.

This year, we screened over 200 films in 7 venues across Los Angeles, including 42 world premieres and films representing 29 countries! We hosted countless big name stars like Billy Porter, Big Freedia, Kevin Bacon, Juliane Moore, Rosie O’Donnell and so so many more. But our true MVPs were the people who came out to see a movie with us, adding up to over 13,000 attendees this year!


Thank you so much for supporting us and here is to 40 more years of uplifting LGBTQ cinema!
