Outfest, the Los Angeles nonprofit committed to creating social change by bringing LGBT stories to the big screen, has released the complete programming lineup for its 2015 season. Hosted by HBO, the country's premiere LGBT film festival will run from July 9 to July 19, 2015.
The festival will feature a mix of both seasoned filmmakers and debuting artists, with an incredible 28 new filmmakers listed in the lineup. There's also six world premieres, and three U.S. premieres.
In addition to the much-anticipated re-release of 54: The Director's Cut, there's a documentary about closeted Hollywood hunk Tab Hunter, the hilarious must-see Do I Sound Gay?, and Tig Notaro's documentary Tig, which explores the comedian's battle against cancer.
A few of our TV favorites will make noteworthy appearances in LGBT-friendly roles: Glee's Chord Overstreet (in Fourth Man Out) and Diana Agron (Bare) will be rubbing elbows with OITNB's Natasha Leone and Parks & Rec's Aubrey Plaza, who both star in Fresno.
