London Transgender Film Festival

Independent, experimental, cutting edge and diverse are just some words to describe the first London Transgender Film Festival which will take place at the Ritzy in Brixton on the 7th, 8th and 9th of November.

Its focus is to exhibit content of transgender, intersex, androgyny, gender variant, trans feminists, gender queer, and gender fluid persons of all natures, all races and cultures, ages and abilities.

Its aim is to increase trans visibility and acknowledgement, question the gender binary, to dispel ignorance and demystify stereotypes, unite and support a diverse LGBTQI community and celebrate trans spaces and their friends.

The festival is also about communication and growth and will screen films of dynamic and important themes. It hopes to encourage and liberate self expression in independent trans filmmaking in London and globally for years to come.

Some highlights of this year’s festival will be new unreleased film screenings, important films that have not had much exposure in mainstream festivals, documentaries from around the world, an exhibition, workshops, and a panel with special guests.
