The Los Angeles area will be infused with a diverse and exciting lineup of films during Fusion 2009: The Los Angeles LGBT People of Color Film Festival, presented by Outfest and HBO. The festival will showcase a variety of feature films as well as shorts this year. The full lineup was released by festival director of programming Kimberly Yutani this week and includes such recent film festival favorites as Pedro and I Can't Think Straight. In addition to the films that will be screened, the festival will feature panels, workshops, and parties for festival-goers to enjoy.

A completely unique film festival because of its niche within multiple minority groups, Fusion has made it its goal to provide an underserved audience of LGBT people of color with media that is relevant and relatable. According to Yutani, "Fusion highlights cultures and experiences that are so often marginalized in mainstream media. Fusion films and videos are provocative, moving and fun, and most importantly, the festival brings together diverse audiences and draws connections between people of different races, classes, and genders."

The festival will take place in Los Angeles March 6-8. Screenings will be held in the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood, and the other festival-related events will be at Universal Studios and the LAGLC's Village at Ed Gould Plaza. Go to www.outfest.org for more detailed screening information.

This year marks the sixth annual Fusion Festival in Los Angeles. (Advocate.com)
