Fusion Gala Shorts



Fusion Gala Shorts & After Party

Infamously known as Outfest’s hottest party of the year, the night begins with our annual celebration of stunning QTPOC short films that spark with the electric intersectionality of our diverse and dynamic community. These films are guaranteed to move your soul, make you laugh, and get your blood pumping. Once the credits roll, the party moves outside to the courtyard where our DJ will have you dancing under the stars all night long – including a special set from some of LA’s finest voguers. With a roaring crowd and an open bar, it’s a night where friends come easy and the fun never ends.
