The 2016 Outfest Los Angeles LGBT Film Festival taking place July 7 to 17, 2016, announced the complete lineup of films including opening night film THE INTERVENTION and closing night film OTHER PEOPLE.

The 2016 Outfest Los Angeles LGBT Film Festival opens with Samuel Goldwyn Films’ “The Intervention”, Clea Duvall’s engaging directorial and screenwriting feature debut starring Cobie Smulders, Melanie Lynskey, Natasha Lyonne, Jason Ritter, Ben Schwartz, Alia Shawkat and Clea Duvall; and closes with Vertical Entertainment’s “Other People” – a 2016 Sundance Film Festival standout, written and directed by Saturday Night Live’s Chris Kelly and starring Jesse Plemons, Zach Woods, Bradley Whitford, Maude Apatow, Molly Shannon and June Squibb.

Additional gala screenings include: U.S. Centerpiece “Spa Night” (Dir/Scr: Andrew Ahn), International Centerpiece “Esteros” (Dir/Scr: Gerald “Papu” Curotto), Documentary Centerpiece “Kiki” (Dir: Sara Jordenö), Legacy Centerpiece “Different From The Others” (Dir: Richard Oswald), and Special Centerpiece “King Cobra” (Dir: Justin Kelly) starring James Franco, Christian Slater, Keegan Allen, Molly Ringwald and Alicia Silverstone.

With 162 films from 19 different countries, Outfest Los Angeles once again brings together the highest quality of LGBTQ film in the world along with highlighting efforts in the mainstream media to tell those stories. The 2016 Outfest Los Angeles LGBT Film Festival will return to the Ford Theatres after a two-year renovation of the historic venue. The much anticipated comedy, “Ghostbusters” will kick off the screenings on July 13 with Documentary Centerpiece “Kiki”, “Bearcity 3”, “Modern Love”, and Closing Night Gala “Other People” following on the subsequent days.

Spotlight screenings include the Season 2 premiere of Hulu’s “Difficult People”; a tribute screening of “The Hunger” in honor of David Bowie; HBO’s “Looking: The Movie” and “The Trans List”; Tig Notaro’s new comedy series “One Mississippi” from Amazon as well as the Season 3 premiere of “Transparent”; and TBS’ new comedy series “Search Party”.

Outfest Los Angeles will also be showcasing three digital series which includes the world premiere of “For Ex-Lovers Only” from director/screenwriter Andrew Gitomer, the Season 2 world premiere of “The Chadwick Journals” from directors Deondray Gossett and Quincy LeNear and the 2016 GLAAD Media Award winner for Outstanding Digital Journalism, “Holler if You Hear Me: Black and Gay in the Church” from director Clay Cane.
