To learn more about Outfest and ticket purchase, click here: http://www.outfest.org/ Purchase your tickets while they are available(There's a discount for Outfest members): Directors Guild of America building - DGA (address above) is the location for most movies, but some movies are shown at a few other location - make sure you know where. Parking at the DGA are either free or discounted price, depending on parking space availability. Here are some movies that you can join us: - Bitter Melon on July 13 at 7:00 PM @ Harmony Gold Theater (7655 W. Sunset Blvd., L.A., 90046) Look for Richard Kleinberger (SCLMA board). Who knew that the insensitive way some of his Filipino-American family members treat his sexuality would be the least of Declan’s worries when he returns home for the holidays? - Bao Bao on July 15 at 1:45 PM @ DGA 1 (meet at the DGA Atrium). Look for Crystalynn Thai (SCLMA board). This deeply felt feature film debut by Shie Guang-cheng tells the story of Taiwanese expats Cindy and Joanne, living in London, who are about to have their first child. Their marital bliss is threatened when Cindy discovers that Joanne has promised their unborn son to another gay couple. - Riot on July 15 at 4:30 PM @ DGA (meet at the DGA Atrium) We will walk to one of the local restaurant after the movie for dinner. Look for Richard Peng and Colin Meng (SCLMA Board). In 1978, when the push to decriminalize homosexuality had stalled, a group of friends decide to make one final attempt to celebrate who they are. Led by a former union boss, they get a police permit and spread the word, unaware that the courage they find will finally mobilize the nation. This vivid retelling of “Australia’s Stonewall” is brought to life by a superb ensemble cast playing the real-life figures whose activist work led to the creation of the first-ever Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. - That Night of November (Nove de Novembro) on July 16 at 9:45 PM @ DGA 1 (meet at the DGA Atrium). Look for Richard Peng (SCLMA board). About the movie: It’s November 1989, and the Berlin Wall is coming down. But as Germany reunifies, Roberto and Miguel find themselves coming apart at the seams. The two look back at their ten years together — a tumultuous decade that included coming out of the closet and dealing with HIV — and come to terms with what it takes to stay together. - I Miss You When I See You on July 21 at 11:30 AM @ DGA 1 (meet at the DGA Atrium). We will walk to one of the local restaurant after the movie for dinner. Look for Richard Peng (SCLMA board). After living in Australia for a decade, Kevin returns to Hong Kong and reunites with childhood friend Jamie. Kevin confesses his affection for Jamie but is met with aloofness, spiraling him into self-sabotaging behavior. Now Jamie needs to reconcile his feelings for Kevin before he loses him forever. - Postcards from London on July 20, 2018 at 8:30 PM @ The Ford Amphitheater - there's parking fee: (http://www.outfest.org/fest2018/venues-maps-parking/). Look for Richard Kleinberger (SCLMA board). Broke and beautiful, Joe (Beach Rats breakout Harris Dickinson) chases his big-city dreams to London and lands in the company of the Raconteurs: an elite gang of escorts who mix sex work with an encyclopedic knowledge of art history. Buzzing with electric energy and awash in Caravaggio, Joe’s journey takes him through the neon-lit labyrinth of Soho and, even more fantastically, transports him into classical paintings themselves. - Believer (free movie) on July 21, 2018 at 2:00 PM @ Harmony Gold Theater (7655 W. Sunset Blvd., L.A., 90046) Look for Richard Peng (SCLMA board). Utah has the highest youth suicide rate in America and the largest Mormon population. For native son Dan Reynolds — frontman for the Grammy Award-winning Imagine Dragons — it’s a call to action to change his faith community from the inside out and foster policies of acceptance toward its LGBTQ members.
