TranScreen Amsterdam Transgender Film Festival

TranScreen is a 4 day cultural festival held every two years in Amsterdam, showcasing a broad range of carefully curated documentaries, shorts and feature films, with an aim to promote and contribute a positive awareness of Trans and Gender Diverse ( TGD) people. TranScreen is also Europe's longest running TGD specific film festival, organised by dedicated volunteers. Through the film programming we hope to celebrate the struggles and successes of the rich tapestry of people that make up the TGD community an often misunderstood and ignored sector of society. We strive for inclusivity, our target audience not just the TGD community and allies, but the general population as a whole.

Moonlight People

Director: Dmitri Frolov.

         Two completely traditional couples of lovers on a warm summer night make a kind of coming-out in front of each other, telling about their hidden impulses from a previous life. 
          The impetus to making the film was the book of the same name by the Russian religious philosopher Vasily Rozanov, who died 100 years ago. His treatise was devoted to the study of sexuality and its denial in Christianity. 
            The film was made in the style of experimental films of the 1920s with a non-linear narrative full of strange surrealistic images. He is black and white and devoid of dialogue. The image is based on the music of Alexander Scriabin "The Poem of Ecstasy", composed and performed also at the beginning of the 20th century.

It    is polished, beautifully filmed, straight forward without offending and even funny. It is a    pity the doccie was only screened once as a wider audience should s...
