At some point in 2015 the name Modus Vivendi Village Players was changed to OUTFest. Here is a note on p.31 of
IMPACT 17, Festival Programme:
"Founded in 2014 by D.Morton under the name Modus Vivendi, the festival's initial mandate was to provide opportunities for local LGBTQ+ artists.
In 2015, Isaac Mulè took over as Artistic Director, and the company and festival rebranded as Page 1 Productions and
OutFest, updating their mandate to fostering and cultivating LGBTQ+ stories."
