Outfest is a Los Angeles-based nonprofit arts organization dedicated to creating, sharing, and protecting lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and genderqueer media.

The Outfest Fusion QTBIPOC Film Festival was born in 2004 out of a grassroots movement by Outfest alumni filmmakers to promote social change through the power of film. Since then, Fusion has continued to bring the city’s multicultural communities together to centre LGBTQIA+ people of colour and provide a platform to amplify our voices. The mission of Outfest Fusion is not only to amplify these voices but also provide access and resources specific to the needs of the QTBIPOC community. The programming at Outfest Fusion exists to directly close and challenge the systemic access gap for LGBTQIA+ people of colour.

In 2022, Fusion will include a robust digital program as well as theatrical screenings and other in-person events (as regulations allow), featuring thought-provoking films, filmmaking workshops and masterclasses, a one-minute movie contest, and industry networking opportunities.
