Transforming Cinema - a film festival celebrating trans cinema
Date Made/Found: 2016
Department: Social History
Accession Number: 2019.46
“E.D.E.N Film Productions have now presented two Transforming Cinema film festivals in 2016 and 2018. The festivals championed transgender, gender nonconforming, non binary and gender queer voices, and were held in venues across Sheffield City centre. As a non binary person, I have felt able to relax, breathe and feel okay in my own skin at Transforming Cinema festivals because I’ve known I’d not be subject to any unwelcome attention. Seeing people I can identify with has helped me accept myself: I’m okay! Like everyone else, we experience the whole range of emotions, the lows and the highs; and, some of the time, we flourish.”
