NewFest is thrilled to present the east coast premiere screening of the 2016 OutSet Shorts. OutSet: The Young Filmmakers Project from The Los Angeles LGBT Center and Outfest, now in its fifth 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 a five-month filmmaking lab led by industry professionals and mentored by working filmmakers who were also Outfest alumni. Don’t miss the inspiring screening of the five short films written, produced and directed by a new generation of storytellers.
