Outfest has announced the line-up for Fusion 2009: The Sixth Annual Los Angeles LGBT People of Color Film Festival, a three-day program of films, panels, workshops, and parties. The festival of screenings and events will kick-off on Friday, March 6 with the annual Opening Night Gala shorts program-- a program of short films that includes award-winning short, "La Corona" and "The Young and Evil," an official selection of the 2009 Sundance Film Festival. The festival will close on Saturday, March 7 with the Los Angeles premiere of "Pedro," written by Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Dustin Lance Black and directed by Nick Oceano. "Fusion highlights cultures and experiences that are so often marginalized in mainstream media," says Kimberly Yutani, Outfest's Director of Programming, in a statement. "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." Fusion continues March 8 with the Second Annual Conference, Ignite the Fuse: Queer People of Color in Film, TV and Video, curated by filmmaker Cheryl Dunye. This year's conference will focus on "strengthening networks between people of color LGBT community organizations and media makers." Creative collaborations, both past and present, will be discussed and applied to the development of new ventures in today's queer media market. Highlights include a panel entitled "Prop 8 and the Fallacy of Single Issue Politics," and a DIY workshop called "Instant Gratification Media Making."
