7 Must-See Films About LGBTQ+ People of Color at Outfest Fusion 2022

Author: Rachel Shatto

The return of Outfest couldn’t have come at a better time, as Outfest Executive director Damien S. Navarro explains. Now is the time when LGBTQ+ voices are especially vital, so the festival’s organizers have worked hard to signal to boost those who are the most vulnerable. “As we find ourselves back in a moment where our rights as LGBTQIA+ people are being taken away and our very existence silenced, we know these moves have a greater impact on LGBTQIA+ communities of color,” Navarro says. “We have continued to evolve Outfest Fusion in ways we hope to empower the next generation of storytellers to reshape their own narrative and to drive cultural change.’’ 

This year’s program will include seven feature films, 52 short films, three episodic titles, and a One-Minute Movie Contest (sponsored by Hyundai), along with a variety of workshops and panels. Those interested in attending have two options, as this year’s 10-day festival will be held both in-person from April 8-13 and online from April 13-17. The festival is open for filmmakers and the general public to attend.
