James Franco’s ‘Howl’ to open Outfest 2010

By Greg Hernandez 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!
