James Franco’s “Howl” to open Outfest Film Festival
By Greg Hernandez
This should make for a sensational opening night for Outfest 2010!
It’s just been announced that the 28th edition of the LA LGBT film festival will open July 8 with Howl, the debut narrative feature from acclaimed documentarians Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman.
It stars James Franco, David Strathairn, Jon Hamm, Mary-Louise Parker and Jeff Daniels and will screen at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles.
“’HOWL’ is an important and inspiring movie that is extremely relevant today,” says Kim Yutani, Director of Programming of Outfest. “The film reminds us of the influence of Allen Ginsberg’s groundbreaking work, and eloquently tells the story of an artist who challenged the status quo on a personal and artistic level. By selecting ‘HOWL’ as our Opening Night, we believe that it will set the tone for this year’s festival and celebrate all of the forward-thinking artists that will be part of our exciting line-up.”
