TRANSlations: Trans Cinema in Seattle


TRANSlations: Seattle Trans Film Festival showcases films by, for and about our Trans+ community (Trans, Non-Binary, Gender Non-Conforming, Intersex and Two-Spirit). Running June 7 - 8 in Seattle, Washington, TRANSlations was launched in 2006 and is one of only nine Trans+ focused film festivals in the world. The festival features virtual and in-person screenings, parties, panels, workshops, and community meet-ups.

TRANSlations has over 70 films and opens with the WE ARE HER program of shorts highlighting notable trans women from the past and present who have acted in the struggle for liberation and cut paths for us to follow today. The closing night special feature is the West Coast Premieres of Sam's World and Vapor Trails. Sam (Lily Lady) is a nonbinary twentysomething sex worker trying to navigate their life over the course of one weekend in New York City. Directed by Willow Skye-Biggs, Vapor Trails is a beautifully shot short film focusing on two displaced women seeking transcendence through connection.

For people who can’t get to Seattle the festival will also be streamed and have on demand features from June 6th to the 9th.
