Frontiers Media, DirecTV Team on Outfest Los Angeles Behind-the-Scenes Coverage (Exclusive)

The partnership will feature documentaries and movies, as well as red carpet interviews and talks with filmmakers

Frontiers Media has teamed with DirecTV to provide special behind-the-scenes coverage of the LGBT Film Festival, Outfest, via DirecTV’s platform Outfest Outline.

Outfest Online gives nationwide access to curated selection of films from the LGBT film festival, as well as to Frontiers’ behind-the-scenes videos. This is the first time Outfest and its films are offered through a third party platform.

The site features a collection of shorts, documentaries and feature length films from past and present Outfest, and will now include red carpet interviews, talks with filmmakers and VIP access to parties. Moreover, Frontiers Media will draw guest hosts from the various LGBT influencers and talent.

Outfest was founded by UCLA students in 1982 and promotes equality by creating, sharing and protecting LGBT stories on screen. Over the past three years, Outfest has showcased thousands of films around the world and protected more than 35,000 LGBT films and videos. Outfest Los Angeles LGBT Film Festival is an 11-day festival of films, panels and parties, which ran from July 9 to 19 this year.

“Outfest is one of largest and most important LGBT film festivals in the world–it’s been described as the Gay Sundance—and Frontiers Media is proud to be working with DirecTV and Outfest in supporting and expanding access to this creative and entertaining content,” said Michael Turner, president and CEO of Frontiers Media.

Outfest Online is available for streaming on computers, mobile and tablets through the end of 2015. The behind-the-scenes coverage will also air on FrontiersMedia.com.

Frontiers Media is an LGBT media company that spans from digital, print, radio and television, to outdoor signage and unique experiences. The media company was the first in gay publishing almost 35 years ago and now publishes its biweekly gay print magazine, Frontiers, which is distributed through California and Nevada. Frontiers Media also co-produces The Horizon, a gay web series with over 35 million views.

DirecTV is provider of digital television entertainment servies to more than 39 millions customers in the United States and Latin America.

Both Frontiers Media and DirecTV are Grand Sponsors of this year’s Outfest. Moreover, Frontiers Media’s gay lifestyle magazine, Frontiers, has been offering in-depth coverage of the festival leading up to the event, as well as other LGBT cinema and TV interests. This particular issue will be available for free at the festival and is for download via Apple Newsstand, Google Play and Amazon.
