In 2014, TIME Magazine decreed a “transgender tipping point” in terms of legal rights, visibility, and representation. Yet misrepresentation, discrimination, and violence against transgender people is increasing at an alarming rate. In conjunction with the Trans Possibilities Intensive, join visionary filmmakers Tourmaline (Happy Birthday, Marsha!) and Sam Feder (Disclosure) in an exclusive conversation with Sundance Institute’s Outreach & Inclusion and Indigenous Programs Coordinator, Moi Santos, for a discussion on their filmmaking processes and praxes, the state of transgender representation and cultural production, and the power of storytelling as an agent of cultural change.
About the Sundance Outreach & Inclusion Program
Inclusion is one of the core values driving Sundance Institute’s work. The Outreach & Inclusion Program encompasses our initiatives across all programs within our organization to deepen engagement with and support of storytellers and audiences across ethnicities, genders, abilities, sexual orientations, and geographic regions. In doing so, we work to increase the diversity of projects submitted for consideration to all Institute programs—including labs, intensives, grants, and the Sundance Film Festival—and to inspire emerging artists to tell their stories.
