tilde is back for 2021!
Established in 2014, tilde is a community-based, international film festival located in Melbourne, and one of a handful of trans and gender diverse (TGD) film festivals in the world. Our festival exhibits and supports the work of TGD filmmakers and artists, and works that have TGD content, for TGD people, allies, and the wider community. It is also a crucial opportunity for TGD community members to gather and connect with one another in a safe and supportive environment.
Our mission at tilde is to showcase films that celebrate the stories and perspectives of trans and gender diverse communities, to provide opportunities to trans and gender diverse filmmakers, to challenge gender normativity, and to celebrate diverse representations of gender.
We are looking for films that explore TGD stories and experiences. Films will require TGD content to be shown at our online sessions, and we will prioritise films that are directed, written, or produced by TGD people. We welcome films of all genres, lengths and styles, but are particularly interested in feature-length fiction. We are also particularly interested in Australian films, and films made by and about Indigenous peoples. Submission requires a $10AUD fee.
