OUTShine Film Festival


It’s that time of year again to celebrate artistry in cinema and film at the OUTShine Festival, Spring Edition in Miami. Be sure to save the date for the 21st annual springtime event. This year’s showcase will be held in Miami, Florida for ten fun-filled days beginning on April 18 – 28, 2019. The OUTshine Film Festival has been named as one of the top one hundred events in South Florida by BizBash. It is also one of the premiere, largest LGBTQ events held in the Sunshine State.

The Miami Gay & Lesbian Film Festival began in 1998 and the Fort Lauderdale Gay & Lesbian Film Festival, in 2008. In 2015, the two powerhouse events were combined to become The MiFo LGBT Film Festival. Recently renamed the OUTShine Festival to emphasize the power and brilliance of these bi-annual celebrations, editions are still held in both cities every year with each being unique, so you going to want to attend both!

Come mingle with attendees, entrants and presenters at any number of near-nightly parties! To peruse this year’s spring program, we invite you to visit: Listed as attendees are producers, writers, directors and previous award recipients. Plenty of social events and panels round out the itinerary.

Tickets may be purchased 24 hours per day at or by phone M-F 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM at 877-766-8156. Also available are travel packages that include accommodations for out-of-towners at special event rates. Please visit our website for further information
