OUTsider Film & Arts Festival

A MESSAGE FROM OUTSIDER’S ARTISTIC DIRECTOR . . . "Hello lovers, OUTsiders and lovers of OUTsiders! Give OUT Day is here! What is #GiveOUTDay? It’s a national day of giving to LGBT non-profits: A way to celebrate and support the incredible work our communities are doing, often in the face of seriously daunting barriers, including the financial. There are so many great LGBT non-profits to give your money to on Give OUT Day and, if you have the ability, I hope that you will. I also hope that OUTsider will be on your list. As friends of OUTsider, I don’t need to tell you that art is sustenance. It inspires, challenges, rejuvenates, and imagines magnificent new worlds into being. To the queer community, art has been a vital means of expression, community building, education . . . A way to make beauty (and trouble) in an often harsh and prejudicial world. A way to refuse silence and the status quo. A way to push the world to think harder and love deeper. A way to insist “we exist!” in the face of those who would keep our lives and stories in the shadows. For all these reasons and more, I believe that our little oddball, rule-breaking multi-arts festival is absolutely vital. But, OUTsider is also more than a festival. We aim to be an ongoing haven of support: An international sanctuary for queer artists and outsiders to dream, share, collaborate, and re-charge. We have so many ideas and BIG gay dreams for this little queer fest, but we need your help to make them possible."
