Started seven years ago as a small scholarship fundraiser by Los Angeles running group, LA Frontrunners, the Don Thompson LGBT Film Festival has blossomed into a USC Lambda signature event celebrating the work of USC’s up-and-coming LGBT and Ally filmmakers. Join us for the film screenings and awards followed by a cocktail reception with light appetizers.

Proceeds from the festival benefit the Don Thompson Scholarship in Cinematic Arts.
