MISSION & OBJECTIVE

This groundbreaking festival is presented by Three Dollar Bill Cinema to provide the Pacific Northwest with a venue for films that highlight and celebrate all aspects of the transgender community.
Launched in 2006, Translations is one of only a few transgender film festivals in the world.


ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

TRANSLATIONS: The Seattle Transgender Film Festival is produced by Three Dollar Bill Cinema, an organization that strengthens, connects, and reflects diverse communities through queer film and media.
We recognize that the term transgender is an umbrella term that fits many different types of people, as well as not fitting some people at all. We strive to provide a place for the exploration of transgender identities and issues through cinema, as the community continues to evolve with time.
Translations is a four-day event that includes programs such as presentations, clip shows, discussions, premieres, and archival films. Audience awards are given for Best Narrative Feature, Best Documentary, and Best Short Film.

ORGANIZERS

Danny Tayara (Programming Coordinator); Jason Plourde (Executive Director); Sam Berliner (Director)
