The OutWest Film Fest celebrates the best of LGBTQ international film making and on May 18th will feature the documentary film, Light in the Water from 3:00pm to 5:00pm at the Nevada Museum of Art. Light in the Water shares the empowering story of West Hollywood Aquatics, the first openly gay masters swim team, from their founding in 1982 for the first ever Gay Games in San Francisco, through the AIDS crisis, and up to the present day. It has now screened in over 10 film festivals around the world, including Paris, Glasgow, Sydney, London and Palm Springs, where in January it was voted “Best of Fest” by audiences. Following the film will be a special Q&A session with Director, Lis Bartlet and Taj Paxton, Executive Producer and Head of Logo Documentary Films.
The second part of the program from 6:00pm to 8;00pm will feature international and regional shorts including films that have screened in festivals across the globe.
The following day, the festival will conclude from 1:00pm to 3:00pm at the Bruka Theatre with a variety of both scripted and documentary short films.
