We are very excited to collaborate with local film organisation Eyes Wide Open to present a new specially curated series of cinema exploring issues that are important to sexual and gender minority communities.
Event Intro 8pm
Film Screenings 8.05–9.30pm
Panel Discussion 9.45–10.15pm approx.
For the fifth year running, Trans Pride Brighton & Hove, My Genderation and Eyes Wide Open Cinema have teamed up to curate a selection of short film exploring a variety of trans lives and experiences worldwide. This eclectic selection, featuring both fact and fiction film, is a testament to the heterogeneity of trans lives and a celebration of resilience in the face of oppression.
The film will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Jacob Engelberg and featuring Fox Fisher, Ugla Stefanía Kristjönudóttir Jónsdóttir, and more to be confirmed.
Surround audio and regular cinema seating will all take place in our compact Auditorium Foyer space. Limited spaces available. Advance booking is highly recommended.
