The California Institute of Contemporary Arts (CICA) is offering a $17K fundraising challenge, matching any new donations that are received by April 30, to FilmOut San Diego up to $17K.

Any donation amount will assist FilmOut in bringing the 20th Anniversary LGBT film festival back to San Diego from June 7-10 at The Observatory North Park.

Every year the film festival brings with it the best in LGBT films and shorts. Hollywood elite grace the iconic Observatory Theatre during the three-day event shining the spotlight on the neighborhood of North Park. 

At other times during the year, FilmOut brings classic films back onto the big screen with special showings. In December of last year, their screening of the musical  "Xanadu" quickly sold out the auditorium. 

This year, on April 18, they will celebrate the 30th anniversary of Torch Song Trilogy with a special showing
