OUTshine LGBTQ+ Film Festival

NAME OF FESTIVAL: OUTshine LGBTQ Film Festival (Miami | Fort Lauderdale)

SINCE: 1998

WHERE: Ft Lauderdale, FL. | Miami, FL


The Miami Gay & Lesbian Film Festival started in 1998; the Fort Lauderdale Gay & Lesbian Film Festival in 2008. Both were brought together under one brand: OUTshine LGBTQ+ Film Festival - underscoring our broad appeal and dynamic multi-cultural location. Critically and internationally acclaimed, it serves as a platform for numerous premiers and is the largest LGBT cultural arts event in South Florida.

Outshine is everything you want in a film festival... inviting, glowing, and eclipsing all others before it. Our mission is to inspire, entertain, and educate; encouraging a sense of community through international and culturally diverse film, video, and other media that offer historical and contemporary perspectives on the LGBTQ+ experience.
