This year's Outfest Film Festival will run from July 8 - 18 in Los Angeles, and the lineup has already got me more than excited to cover the fest again this year. There's some familiar film titles in the official lineup, including SXSW favorites BEAR NATION and STRANGE POWERS, and enough international features to keep everyone interested.

But what's most exciting about Los Angeles' oldest film festival (and that nation's leading LGBT fest), are the big screenings lined up - including the Opening and Closing Night galas and two Centerpiece films. The Opening Night Film will be Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman's James Franco-starring HOWL, and the fest will close out with Closing Night film, J.B. Ghuman, Jr.'s SPORK. The two Centerpiece films include THE OWLS and UNDERTOW. Jane Lynch will also receive this year’s Outfest Achievement Award.

After the break, check out the full lineup for this year's Outfest!
