Festival History

In 1997, Christopher Lee, Al Austin, and Elise Hurwitz made history when they founded Tranny Fest, North America’s first transgender film festival.  From the beginning, the festival – now called the San Francisco Transgender Film Festival (SFTFF) – has built community, launched careers, and mentored emerging transgender filmmakers and festivals around the world. SFTFF screens films that promote the visibility of transgender and gender variant people and challenge mainstream media stereotypes of our communities.

Festival Director, Shawna Virago, invites you to experience three days and nights of award-winning transgender cinema  dynamic programs of local, national and international films by transgender and gender variant artists from around the world.  And don’t miss the November 9 tribute to Christopher Lee, details below.
