San Francisco Trans Film Festival

By Charlotte Robinson, November 06, 2017
Founded in 1997 the San Francisco Transgender Film Festival is the world’s first & longest running transgender film festival & is celebrating its 20th anniversary. SFTFF 2017 runs from November 10th to 13th at the Roxie Theater in San Francisco & to celebrate this milestone it will feature a special expanded International program & an Opening Night Anniversary Gala. Shawna Virago Artistic Director stated, “We were founded at a time in 1997 when funders would not support transgender film festivals or filmmakers & so for years, we have had to survive & thrive on our transgender smarts, sweat & love from the community. The San Francisco Transgender Film Festival provides a powerful counter-narrative to the increasingly assimilationist world of transgender reality stars & celebrities. Hollywood gets it very wrong. Come see trans & gender-variant people telling our own stories. Come see trans characters played by trans actors & help us celebrate our milestone 20th Festival!” From sexy shorts to inspiring animation, from gender-busting music videos to hard-hitting documentaries, SFTFF 2017 truly has something for everyone & all genders are welcomed to attend. SFTFF was founded in 1997 as the world’s first transgender film festival & is built upon grassroots, social-justice-seeking, anti-oppression principles. Originally a bi-annual festival, SFTFF expanded to an annual festival in 2003 by audience demand. This year’s Festival will feature films from more than a dozen countries around the world & will feature a closed-captioned-for-Deaf-&-hard-of-hearing audiences program with ASL interpretation.
