Here's something interesting:
The festival will take place at the Ritzy Cinema in Brixton, London, UK,
Independent, experimental, cutting edge and diverse are just some words
to describe this year’s London Transgender Film Festival in November 08.
Film is a diverse medium that speaks universally to us all. It is fluid,
poetic, transitional and has the power to create and express externally
ourselves in any colour, shape or form.
It’s an art form, it’s a documentary form, it’s a drama form, its
experimental, it’s just one still image with a voice…or it’s a voice
with a blank screen, or an image with no sound… it can just be however
one creates it, sees it, hears it…dreams it… like a visual mirror that
takes one into other dimensions, beyond the solid physical self… it can
break down patterns, formulas and create new ones. It is never
permanent, it is forever changing. In its true form it is limitless, it
is transient, it is a medium of visual and sound transformations.
This year’s Festival is looking for works of all different styles and
It’s 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
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.
