The fifth annual Los Angeles International Gay and Lesbian Film/Video Festival opens Friday at the Four Star Theater with a pair of winners.

It's an ambiguous request, a moment ripe with possibility, as imagined by director Christopher Munch in "The Hours and Times." His film is one of the 192 films, documentaries and shorts in the 10th annual Los Angeles International Gay and Lesbian Film and Video Festival showing at the Directors Guild of America.

"Getting this award from Outfest is like--I mean, the whole basis of my career comes from this festival," enthuses Gus Van Sant, who will receive the Outfest Achievement Award at Thursday's opening-night gala at the Pantages Theatre.
