Outfest, the Los Angeles LGBTQ film festival originally founded by UCLA students in 1982, has announced the lineup for its 36th edition, which will take place July 12-22 and includes titles from Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Mexico.


Having its North American premiere, Colombian film Eva & Candela (¿Cómo te llamas?) by Ruth Caudelli, is a portrait of two strong, independent women: a female director and the star of her first film, drawn together by a powerful attraction and their shared desire to take on the movie world. The passion between them creates a seductive and fascinating intimacy. But over time, their relationship evolves, swinging from infatuation to sensuality, which turns to tenderness, and then routine. They never wanted to be a conventional couple, and yet that’s just what they’ve become.
