OUTshine Film Festival

Saturday, Apr 20, 2019 various times - English

The Miami Gay & Lesbian Film Festival started in 1998; the Fort Lauderdale Gay & Lesbian Film Festival in 2008. Both were brought together under one brand to become The MiFo LGBT Film Festival in 2015, with a seasonal event serving each city. Critically and internationally acclaimed, it serves as a platform for numerous premiers and is the largest LGBT cultural arts event in South Florida.

Because of its increasing popularity and success, MiFo has been rechristened to the OUTSHINE Film Festival, underscoring its brightness, broad appeal and dynamic multi-cultural location. Outshine is everything you want in a film festival... inviting, glowing, and eclipsing all others before it. Our mission is to inspire, entertain, and educate; encouraging a sense of community through international and culturally diverse film, video, and other media that offer historical and contemporary perspectives on the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender experience.

OUTrageous. OUTspoken. And OUTstanding in what we deliver. Join us in 2019 for our 21st Annual Miami Edition, April 18-28 and 11th Annual Fort Lauderdale Edition, October 10-20.

Rainbows Sunset

Saturday, Apr 20, 2019 at 4:45 PM - English

Elderly Senator Ramon, the pride of his small, provincial hometown, moves in with his terminally-ill best friend Fredo in his final days. It turns out that their connection goes beyond mere friendship, and the revelation of their relationship brings scandal to the town and conflict among his three adult children. It’s up to his saintly wife to restore harmony. Like the most polished of family melodrama, Rainbow’s Sunset bursts with generosity and heart, and yet veteran hit-maker Joel Lamagan subverts the genre, touching on old age, a subject that LGBTQ cinema has yet to explore.

The Ice King

Saturday, Apr 20, 2019 at 2:30 PM - English

John Curry transformed ice-skating from a dated sport into an exalted art form. Coming out on the night of his Olympic win in 1976, he became the first openly gay Olympian in a time when homosexuality was not even fully legal. Toxic yet charming; rebellious yet elitist; emotionally aloof yet spectacularly needy; ferociously ambitious yet bent on self-destruction, this is a man forever on the run from his father's ghost, his country, and even his own self. John Curry was no activist, but an artist expressing his authentic self – yet in a world where his existence was taboo, his life was unavoidably political.

Vita is a flamboyant extrovert, impervious to scandal, but she’s awed by the intellect of her lover. Virginia is physically awkward, a woman of piercing insight and fragile sanity.

Dykes, Camera, Action!

Saturday, Apr 20, 2019 at 12:15 PM - English

Lesbians didn't always see themselves on screen. But between Stonewall, the feminist movement, and 1970’s experimental cinema, they built visibility and transformed the social imagination about queerness. The film follows filmmakers, critics, and others as they share moving and often hilarious stories and discuss how they've expressed queer identity through film. But it was NOT just about representation in film, but the changes it brought to so many individuals and to some extent to society in general. Dykes, Camera, Action! is the history of queer cinema by those who made it happen.
