The San Francisco Transgender Film Festival (SFTFF) takes place November 12th to 15th with dozens of films screening at the Roxie Theater & Castro Theater. SFTFF screens films that promote the visibility of transgender & gender variant people challenging the mainstream media’s negative stereotypes of our transgender communities. Founded in 1997 & originally named Tranny Fest, SFTFF was North America’s first transgender film festival & continues to provide opportunities for transgender & gender variant media artists, build community through our film, performance events & engages their audiences in cross-community dialogue. SFTFF kicks off with an opening night gala at the Roxie Theater with a program of transgender short films beginning at 7P. Some of the festival film highlights include: Stealth, the heartwarming story of a brave transgender tween. Sammy, assigned male at birth, is now living as a girl with the support of her mother & doctor. Sammy finds herself at a new school navigating the complex gender politics of adolescence. Passing, this Canadian documentary profiles the lives of three men of color who have undergone gender transition from female to male. The film explores what life is like living as a black man, when no one knows you’re transgender & McTucky Fried High from acclaimed filmmaker & illustrator Robert Carnilius. When Peanut is turned away from school photos for not conforming to the gender binary, Peanut takes action in this animated short.
