OUTrageous provides a diverse selection of films that entertain, challenge, and educate the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered communities. OUTrageous also provides filmmakers with opportunities to screen their work that might not otherwise be seen locally.


Since 1991, the Santa Barbara Lesbian & Gay Film Festival has been providing a spectrum of films and videos for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities. Our desire to represent the diversity of our community in film and video has resulted in a new name: OUTrageous: The Santa Barbara Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Film Festival.


Ryan Hedge (Director of Programming)

FEE WAIVERS: While we would like to provide submission fee waivers to as many filmmakers as possible we are generally unable to at this time. We are a small, volunteer-run organization that depends on income from sources like submission fees to survive. You are always free to request a waiver, but please be aware that will most likely be unable to provide one. Thank you for your understanding.

Filmmakers in Santa Barbara county are eligible for fee waivers if requested.
