Documentarians Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman's Howl, their debut narrative feature, will be the Opening Night Gala screening at the 28th Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Film Festival (Outfest) at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown Los Angeles on July 8.

Starring James Franco, David Strathairn, Jon Hamm, Mary-Louise Parker, Bob Balaban, Alessandro Nivola, Aaron Tveit, Treat Williams, and Jeff Daniels, Howl tells the story of counter-culture poet Allen Ginsberg (Franco), who became embroiled in a public obscenity trial in 1957 after writing the poem "Howl," which made the usual sex-crazed prudes go ballistic thanks to lines such as "...who let themselves be fucked in the ass by saintly motorcyclists, and screamed with joy."

Howl was the opening night film at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival and was screened at the Berlin Film Festival.

Oscilloscope Laboratories will release Howl in theaters and VOD on September 24.

The complete movie line-up for Outfest 2010 will be announced on June 2. The festival will be held July 8 to 18.
