Tampa Bay Transgender Film Festival


We are excited to announce our first Tampa Bay Transgender Film Festival in partnership with St Pete Pride!

The vision for the Tampa Bay Transgender Film Festival, is to create a space grounded in and centered around the transgender community, support those in film who support our community, and share these films with our allies. Our Transgender Screening Committee reviewed a number of films, and after much consideration they selected five documentaries with diverse and critical narratives to share with our audience.

For some individuals, particularly those within the LGBTQ+ community, engaging with these films may be emotionally challenging. Due to subjects of dysphoria, violence, and death, viewer discretion is advised. For grounding purposes, the Tampa Bay Transgender Film Festival will be providing a pre-recorded centering video brought to you by our Elevating Event Sponsors Love, Hugh and Medicine Within, LLC. To close our festival, at 7 p.m. EST on Sunday, November 22, a Transgender Healing Space will be available exclusively for any registered attendees who identify under the trans+ umbrella. This private, affirming space will be live and virtual.

At noon on Friday, November 20, Transgender Day of Remembrance, all five films will be launched with full streaming access. Films will be made available to view in any order, or even individually. However, for the curated experience our Transgender Screening Committee designed, we suggest the following event/viewing order:
