TranScreen Filmfestival

The TranScreen Film Festival is a multi-day film festival with international films on themes of transgender and/or gender diversity. During TranScreen you can enjoy feature films and shorts, mainstream and experimental, professional and community films from different countries. TranScreen is the largest transgender film festival in Europe.

TranScreen is a cultural and informative film festival on the theme of transgender and gender diversity. The festival aims to show qualitative and challenging films from all over the world. The aim is to increase public awareness to provide the versatility of transgender and gender diverse people.

Simultaneously, TranScreen is an event in which (trans)gender diversity is the norm. A public space where everyone can be themselves in a secure environment. Regardless of gender orientation or sexual preference. A place to meet up and exchange international experiences in a relaxed and spontaneous way.

TranScreen has a clear social mission. Many ‘closet’ transgender people, or those that have left that noun behind long time ago and are no longer within the transgender community, come to TranScreen. Therefore, the festival offers a special meeting. This is an important asset, the impact should not be underestimated.

Underwire Festival

Underwire’s founders Gabriella Apicella and Gemma Mitchell launched the festival in 2010 with the belief that women working in the UK film industry needed more encouragement and a bigger platform for their work. The fact remains that women still make up a small proportion of film creatives, and Underwire looks to recognise the best short work made by women across a range of crafts – from director to cinematographer; screenwriter to editor. Underwire believes that a more gender balanced industry will benefit everyone by creating a diversity of perspectives, stories and experiences for audiences
