Outfest is thrilled to present the premiere of the 2019 OutSet Shorts. OutSet: The Young Filmmakers Program from the Los Angeles LGBT Center and Outfest, now in its seventh year, was created to empower and educate LGBTQ young people to tell their stories through film. A new crop of fellows between the ages of 16 and 24 participated in OutSet 2.0, a six-month filmmaking lab led by industry professionals and mentored by Outfest alumni filmmakers.
