Outfest Fusion is a three day film festival that focuses on the LGBT people of color. Beginning March 14th at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, the opening night film is the latest from Patrik-Ian Polk, "Blackbird". The film tells the story of a gay high school teen (newcomer, Julian Walker) trying to find his way in a small Southern town and deal with his deeply religious parents played by Isaiah Washington and Oscar winner, Mo'nique.

Comedian, Alec Mapa will not only receive the Outfest Fusion 2014 Achievement Award but his concert film, "Alec Mapa: Baby Daddy" will be the gala screening on March 15th.


The festival will also screen several programs that feature shorts from around the globe including the OutSet Shorts on March 16th which premieres the works of sixteen young film makers created to empower and educate. Plus, there will be plenty of swinging parties before and after the films.
