On Saturday 21st November 2015, the first Trans Film Fest Stockholm took place marking Trans Day of Remembrance (20 November).
Since 1999, this international day commemorates people who have been killed as a result of their gender identity &/or expression highlighting the violence experienced by trans & gender-diverse communities. Different community events are held around the world, bringing people together to engage with, & support, each other.
There is a great need for alternative positive, empowering, community events that celebrate trans lives & experiences & promote trans & gender-diverse visibility, culture & community.
Trans Film Fest Stockholm takes place every year around Trans Day of Remembrance (20 November), providing an opportunity to see films not usually screened in cinemas. It will strive to be a safer space, to reflect upon diverse experiences, & engage the audience in community through film.
We have a selection of Swedish & international films for your viewing pleasure, so please join us.
We very much look forward to meeting you. 🙂
