Her Story – Her Story is about two trans women in Los Angeles who have given up on love, when chance encounters give them hope. Violet is drawn to Allie, a reporter who approaches her for an interview. Career-driven Paige meets James, the first man she’s considered opening up to in years. Will they risk letting what they are stand in the way of being loved for who they are? This is a story of complex characters who laugh, struggle, and grow, who share strength in sisterhood, who seek and find love. Her Story depicts the unique, complicated, and very human women we see in queer communities, and explores how these women navigate the intersections of label identity and love.

Girl-Hearted – It’s quite plain to 7 year old Nori: She is a girl, because she has a girl’s heart. But her body is that of a boy… Five years ago: Each and every day mother and son argue about what appears trivial: the colors of pants and shirts suddenly matter, soon all he agrees to wear are skirts and dresses, he likes to put barrettes in his still short hair. The neighbors start gossiping. Then one day, the boy reveals his favorite dream to his mum. A wizard will turn his penis into a vagina so he could be a “real” girl … It’s that day something comes to an end. It’s that day Josephin realizes that she doesn’t have a son, that he had never existed – but that there is still a kid, a daughter. It becomes clear to her that she will have to break new ground to see her daughter grow up happily.

Missed Connections – Two strangers meet and form a bond at a festival, but they forget to exchange contact info. As they search for one another and through viral posts, they navigate their careers, lives, and society’s expectations of them as Black, female, and transgender.

Onnaninaru – Miyu has dreamed of becoming a female since early childhood and undergoes the longed-for sex reassignment surgery to be able to live in society as a woman. The documentary depicts sincere discussions with family, honest talks with friends, attitude transformations amongst university faculty, the clinical psychologist’s concerns, and the resolve of the doctor. Touching humanity comes to the forefront through the six months’ coverage of Miyu’s life.

My Name Was January – When a trans sister, January Marie Lapuz, is brutally murdered in her own home in New Westminster, BC, her community reacts and her friends and other trans women of colour come to share and voice their issues, concerns, and challenges.

This film will not only bring justice to January, but to all the women who have lost their lives.

Why Can’t I Be Me? Around You – Rusty Tidenberg, drag-racing aficionado, shocked friends and family by coming out as trans. Followed for 8 years by filmmaker Harrod Blank (son of Les Blank), Rusty guides us through the aftermath of her transition. Interwoven with lively tales of gender non-conforming individuals on the art-car circuit, Blank’s film is a sensitive and unpredictable love letter to people who fight to be unapologetically themselves.

Bombshell – Jay, a queer transman, navigates the shark-infested waters of LA’s gay dating scene. He’s young, single, looking for fun, but when the bedroom door closes his private world becomes an arena for cis men and the questions they have. Jay is joined by his chosen family, Selena, his Angeleno best friend, Darlene, the Bostonian Hairdresser, and Penis Mascot, the cartoon caped penis personifying his id.

Our Future – Yu is about 18 when her parents separate and the disorientation 5is compounded by the experience of starting summer school. Yu doesn’t feel very comfortable in her own body; she gets into trouble for wearing tracksuit bottoms to school rather than the regulation skirt. The film follows Yu through that summer, showing her sustaining friendships with the hopeless Yoshiki, a gay boy who’s dyed his hair auburn, and the transwoman dancer Haruka.
