ORGANISERS of the Sixth Annual Trans Pride Film Event are looking for short, fact or fiction films, under 25 minutes that represent the trans experience.

They are particularly encouraging submissions that are fiction films, and films by and/or about trans people of colour, non-western trans people, trans people with disabilities, bi+ trans people, trans people of faith, older trans people, and non binary people.

If you cannot afford the fee,  email Fox at and you will be sent a fee waiver code.

The $5 fee is to ensure that the committee aren’t wading through a lot of material which isn’t trans specific and will be used to pay for the subtitling of all films sumitted to make them more accessible for everyone.

Tickets for the screening will be on sale very soon, at a subsidised cost of £4/£6.

This is a fundraising event to raise money for Trans Pride Brighton.
