James Franco’s ‘Howl’ to open Outfest 2010
By Greg Hernandez
HollywoodNews.com: Outfest is always one of my absolute favorite times of the year. It is 11 glorious days of LGBT films of all genres, terrific panels and parties and the venues are just filled with gifted filmmakers and appreciative audiences.
It is heaven and I know plenty of people who just clear their calendars and try and see as many events as they can at nation’s leading LGBT festival and the oldest film festival in the city.
I’ll be doing plenty of pieces leading up to the July 8 to 18 event since Greg In Hollywood was asked to be one of the sponsors this year!
But for now, let me just give you some of the highlights of what is to come. I’ll have more tomorrow because tonight is the official kickoff party which is always a lot of fun.
The opening night gala gets things into high gear and I don’t recall ever being disappointed with the film selected. This year it will be the debut narrative feature from acclaimed documentarians Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman. It’s called Howl and what a cast: James Franco, Jon Hamm and David Strathairn!
