Who are we?
TG Film Fest: The Los Angeles Transgender Film Festival was founded in 2009 to increase visibility for powerful films by trans and genderqueer filmmakers. Started in response to the lack of transgender people in the media, the TG Film Fest showcases works by established and emerging trans and genderqueer filmmakers. We promote filmmakers to new audiences with encore “best of fest” screenings at colleges and organizations throughout the year.

While you’re at it, submit to the SF trans film fest too! Our friends Shawna Virago and Sean Dorsey run the San Francisco Transgender Film Festival and they’re amazing! Submit to both!
