    I paid to subscribe to OutFest, and downloaded the OutFest Now streaming app. Nice to see the LGBTQ film festival pics from the comfort of my home, on my own schedule. I hear the subscription will continue through the year, but I don’t know what they do between now and next August.

    So far I’ve loved Cowboys (Father and Trans son escape from non-accepting Mom, and the police are chasing them). The nuances of the characters came through. I also found “Cured” interesting, about when the APA changed the DSM so that homosexuality was no longer listed as a mental illness (seeing people lombotomized, or shock therapy treatment, was not fun.)

    Some of the shorts were really great too. I liked the two 20-something lesbians sitting in the car asking “were you a lesbian in high school?” (that might have been the title).

    There are still a few days left, and not enough time in my work schedule to fit everything in (I missed at least one film I’d bookmarked because it expired before I could get to it). If another city’s film festival becomes available, I might sign up for that one too.

    I am a little confused, does this mean it will be available to stream online or is this specific movie only being played in Los Angeles?

    HI Donnyback,
    I signed up for the August film festival. I see announcements of other films from time to time, and can sign in to the app and see choices too - mostly I’ve looked at short films. My August subscription works for the whole year, but as I said I was mostly focused on August.

    This was a virtual film festival, due to COVID-19, so I didn’t need to be in California. I don’t know if it is blocked in other countries.

    There were a couple offerings that were drive-in theatre selections, and those I could not attend because I’m all the way over in the other US coast states.
