Yes, I’m TOTALLY cheating by doing the old copy n paste of this excellent digital newsletter sent out by the wonderful folks at Three Dollar Bill Cinema about the 9th Annual Translations Film Festival, one of the few festivals in the world dedicated to screening films by and about the Trans* community and allies which opens Thursday, May 8 at Harvard Exit with the LIVE performance piece, THE NAKED I: INSIDES OUT. The festival continues through Sunday, May 11 at Northwest Film Forum and features many great films, both docs and narrative fiction feature and short films.

You are STRONGLY urged to check out some of these great films. I’m looking forward to INTERSEXION screening on Saturday. Grab tickets and passes to the festival over HERE!!!!
