Title: My Trans Body
Running time: 1min 59sec
Country/region: UK
Production: Fox Fisher, Owl Fisher, Lewis Hancox
Synopsis: Created as part of a social media campaign, #MyTransBody aims to celebrate what makes us trans, to make people feel better about themselves and their bodies, as trans people. Trans people are often made to feel such shame about their bodies and are held up to impossible standards based on normative ideas about bodies and expression — It is time that we acknowledge how far many of us have come, and that we celebrate all the things that makes our bodies trans.

Originally released on Facebook and YouTube, Fox, Owl and Lewis worked with Amber Evans and Michelle Steele who created an Image Gen(d)erator where people can upload a photo add some text and download an image. The hashtag #MyTransBody became a big trend on twitter, and people from all over the world have been contributing to the conversation.

Title: Victoria Sin
Running time: 5min 49sec
Country/region: UK
Director: Amrou Al-Kadhi
Producer: Savannah James-Bayly
Writers: Amrou Al-Kadhi and Victoria Sin
Sound Recorder: Stefania Fantini
Cinematographer: Craig Dean Devine
Editor: Fiona Brands
Production Company: Fox Cub Films
Synopsis: Amrou Al-Kadhi, Director: "Victoria Sin is my hero. While many London drag queens have dismissed politics for social capital, Victoria’s drag constantly challenges, provokes, and rejuvenates the city’s queer spaces. I’m so inspired by how Victoria unapologetically takes up space when they are in drag. They give spotlight and agency to the daily labours of femininity that are invisible and policed. My hope is that viewers will experience the transformative power of Victoria’s drag, and will watch this queer unicorn warrior be where they belong—in cinematic grandeur, with a gaze that they own".
