Outfest LGBT Film Festival Announces 2015 Honorees

Outfest has announced the award-winners from this year's film festival.

The Outfest Los Angeles LGBT Film Festival unveiled the honorees Sunday at the Directors Guild of America. The festival opened July 9 with Tig, a documentary on comedian Tig Notaro, and closed Sunday with a screening of The New Girlfriend, a gender-bending French drama by François Ozon.

Jury prize winners included Nasty Baby (Kristen Wiig), a black comedy about surrogacy directed by Sebastian Silva, as well as Everlasting Love, an international thriller about a student-teacher affair. A Sinner in Mecca, a film by Parvez Sharma about being gay and Muslim, also took home an award for best documentary feature.

The blue-collar coming-out story Fourth Man Out, starring Chord Overstreet and Kate Flannery; a documentary on DJ Marco Collins and '90s grunge music, The Glamour and the Squalor; and Those People, a drama about same-sex love on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, were among those honored by Outfest audience members.
