OUTshine LGBTQ+ Film Festival Goes Virtual!
Virtual is the new normal! OUTshine LGBTQ+ Film Festival has announced that the 22nd edition has gone virtual. Experience the fun August 20th through August 30th.
The Virtual Edition starts with a Drive-In Opening Night experience beginning Thursday, August 20th. The remaining film events will screen daily, throughout the 10 days with live Q&A’s and actor appearances to maintain the “festival” experience. Participants will be able to view the film for up to 48 hours after the start date.
Centerpiece and Closing Night Films will also have a virtual party experience involving entertainment, silent auctions, and chances for the virtual festival-goer to interact with each other.
Films in the program will be first-run narrative feature length films, documentaries, and short film films. OUTshine’s program will not only be available in South Florida, but ALL of Florida. Executive Director Victor Gimenez says, “The Board & Staff have viewed the challenge of COVID-19 as one to make the Festival not only survive but grow. Since quarantine the Festival has had numerous virtual screenings, which have increased our audience base, has run numerous successful sign-up campaigns, and we look forward to providing our quality LGBTQ+ films to the entire State of Florida. And more importantly, have these new patrons join us for the live Festivals when life gets back to normal.”
Ticketing, ticket packages, and virtual festival memberships are currently being finalized and will be announced in the coming weeks. The program and ticketing will be live by the first week of August.
