Trans Vegas 2021

Trans Vegas is back, the UK's largest trans art festival celebrating trans and non-binary people everywhere.

Comission: Pitch The Trans Film You Want to See (Trans People of Colour Globally)

Trans Vegas are asking trans people of colour to send them pitches and ideas for the trans films you've always wanted to see. This is your chance to imagine that film, bring it to life and maybe inspire the industry to listen and even make it one day. This will form part of their debate as to why so few films/ TV shows/ documentaries centre stories about trans people of colour of all genders. Send them your ideas - three people will then receive a £200 commission to write short pitches which will be part of their film event hosted by Campbell X, award-winning writer/director of feature film Stud Life and director of web series Different for Girls and Spectrum London. The panel will feature other Black and trans film makers of colour.
