Seattle Transgender Film Festival

Translations: the Seattle Transgender Film Festival is celebrating their 10th anniversary presenting over 40 films from May 7th to May 10th in Seattle, Washington. Some of the highlights include opening night with the West Coast premiere of GAME FACE, with Fallon Fox in person. This inspiring film tells the parallel stories of Fox, MMA’s first transgender pro fighter & Terrence Clemens, a gay college basketball player, as they navigate the obstacles of self-realization & acceptance by their sport & society. There will also be the Northwest premiere of TRANSJOURNEY directed by Alexia Kosmider & Blue Wade. TRANSJOURNEY explores three women’s personal journeys & the ways their lives have become intertwined & made stronger because of one another. In 2009 Annabelle transitioned to her new life as a woman in Seattle, Washington & her mother Sandra who lives in Rhode Island sets out on the cross-country trip to spend time with her new daughter. Annabelle meets Shannon an older transgender woman through the meetings they both attended at the Ingersoll Gender Center in Seattle. By offering to talk to Sandra about any questions she may have Shannon and Sandra have become close friends but have yet to meet one another in person. TRANSJOURNEY is a quest of discovery of family, acceptance & identity. There will also be live performances & special events throughout the film festival.
