  2. Program 33: Gloria and Grace

    Flavio R. Tambellini / Subtitled, Narrative Feature, Saturday, Oct. 14 / Brazil / 2016 / 96 mins
    Gloria and Grace is a heartwarming story not as much about being trans as about being family. It’s about discovering an ability to outgrow the boxes we build for ourselves and others in our lives. The film has been garnering awards in the festival circuit for a reason: it’s a true crowd-pleaser, suitable for allies and mainstream audiences alike. So be sure to bring your family and friends!

    Out and proud “trans-visionary gender obliviator” Billy Bloom (Alex Lawther) is fabulousness personified.

His dad warns that “the nail that sticks out gets hammered down,” but Billy has way too much chutzpah to ever simply blend in.

    Melissa Finell / Narrative Feature, Sunday, Oct. 15 / USA / 2016 / 87 mins
    Dr. Serena Wolfe (Anna Lise Phillips, Home and Away, Revolution) is a brilliant and successful microbiologist. She deals in formulas and facts, not so much feelings and etiquette. Painfully abrasive both in her lab and in social situations, she blurts out whatever’s on her mind, oblivious to the effect her words have on others. Unsurprisingly, her sharp tongue has left her with few friends and a pretty solitary life.

  7. Program 39: Saturday Church

    Damon Cardasis / Next Generation Series, Narrative Feature, Sunday, Oct. 15 / USA / 2017 / 82 mins
    Imagine being 14 years old and mourning the death of your father, all while concealing your sexuality and questioning your gender identity. That’s where we find Ulysses (sensational young actor Luka Kain). At school, with a pair of panty hose hidden under his jeans, Ulysses copes with relentless bullying by imagining his classmates cowing at his feet during an elaborate fantasy dance number. At home, he has to contend with his super strict and super religious Aunt Rose (Golden Globe winner, Regina Taylor), whom his mother has brought in to help manage the household. Ulysses is immediately at odds with his domineering aunt: no matter what he does, he’s in trouble. And just wait until Aunt Rose catches him trying on his mother’s high heels!
