The @OUTshineFilmFestival is an annual event that is held in two different cities in South Florida at different times of the year. The festival’s organizers believe that each community is unique and deserves its own festival. However, they also believe that there is a crossover audience that loves LGBTQ+ films and is willing to travel from one city to another to attend the festival. The festival features different films and programs in each city to cater to the specific audience. The commitment of the festival is to celebrate the cultural art form of film and to represent LGBTQ+ stories on the big screen. It is an opportunity for the community to come together and share the experience of watching movies that represent their lives and emotions.
