Trans Film Fest Stockholm was founded by a small group of people based in Stockholm, Sweden who came together to create a one-day film festival marking Trans Day of Remembrance (TDoR) in November 2015.
Our goal was to create a free trans community film festival that would be a positive, empowering safer space for trans & gender-diverse people & allies. Since then, our plans & ambitions have grown & we have branched out into different community events & activities that we hope are of interest to our communities.
At a collective meeting on 30 May 2016, the members of Trans Film Fest Stockholm unanimously decided to change the name of the organisation to more accurately reflect the growing diversity of our events & future plans.
Moving forward, we wish to incorporate all of the possible community events under one collective, organisational name & believe that TRANS FEST STOCKHOLM is more appropriate & inclusive for this purpose.
We will continue to focus our voluntary work on hosting 2 major community events each year – Trans Film Fest Stockholm in November & Trans Fest/an event marking Trans Day of Visibility in March – along with additional special events throughout the year.
It is our hope to collaborate with many different groups & organisations to create positive, inclusive & empowering celebrations of trans & gender-diverse visibility, culture & community.
Thank you for your continued engagement & support.
