Outfest, LA's premiere LGBT media showcase, has announced the lineup for Fusion: the Los Angeles LGBT People of Color Film Festival. The festival, now in its seventh year, will run from March 11-13, with events held at NBCUniversal and Hollywood's Egyptian Theater. The festival will screen two short programs, a Legacy screening of "Portrait of Jason," and a Gala screening of Quentin Lee's "The People I've Slept With."
Wilson Cruz, who stars in "The People I've Slept With" and is best known for his role as Ricky on "My So-Called Life" will receive the 2010 Fusion Achievement Award. In a statement, Outfest noted, "Through his activism and art, Cruz is a role model of courage and honesty who inspires those within and outside the LGBT community." The festival will also be accompanied with Access LA -- a series of workshops meant to help emerging filmmakers break into the TV, film, and new media industries.
