Outfest Los Angeles, now celebrating its 32nd birthday, has unveiled this year's full lineup of LGBT features, documentaries and shorts. The fest runs July 10-20.

Among the headlining gala features will be Desiree Akhavan's hit Sundance coming-out-and-of-age comedy "Appropriate Behavior," a "deadpan," "melancholy" and sexually frank film with echoes of "Girls"; Ben Whishaw stars in Hong Khaou's "Lilting"; and Leighton Meester and Adam Brody lead troubled menage-a-trois opening night film "Life Partners," among other gala screenings.

In the International section, US audiences can finally see Cannes baby Xavier Dolan's 2013 film maudit "Tom at the Farm," an elegant homoerotic mystery-of-sorts about the volatile dynamics between a sad gay hipster and the macho, bi-curious older brother of his dead boyfriend.

Notable actors on the docket this year include Robin Williams and Kathy Baker ("Boulevard"), Matt Bomer, Patrick Wilson, Liv Tyler and Jerry O'Connell (closing night film "Space Station 76"), America Ferrera, Common and Melonie Diaz ("X/Y"), Patricia Clarkson, Zachary Booth, Joseph Cross and Judith Light ("Last Weekend"), Gaby Hoffman ("Lyle") and more. Also in the competition lineup is Andrew Putschoegl's hilarious women-of-a-certain-age buddy movie "BFFs," making waves in the festival circuit throughout the year.

Outfest will present OutSet shorts, a screening of five short films written, produced and directed by a new generation of storytellers, the 2014 graduates of OutSet, the Young Filmmakers Project from LifeWorks and Outfest, an education initiative aimed at LGBT youth.

This year's Outfest UCLA Legacy Project screenings celebrate the 25th anniversary of "Longtime Companion," a groundbreaking account of the harrowing impact of the arrival of HIV/AIDS. The timing is right as HBO enjoys stellar ratings for "The Normal Heart," and helmer Roland Emmerich jumps into production on his labor of love "Stonewall."
