My Genderation – Celebrating 10 years of film-making
…A 90 minute screening of films created by the My Genderation crew (Fox Fisher, Owl, Lewis Hancox and friends) since forming in 2012, followed by a 30 min Q&A
Join My Genderation in celebrating 10 years of trans documentation and celebration of trans lives with a special screening of hand-picked clips and short films created over the past decade.
The films will be introduced by core members of the My Genderation team, including co-founders Fox Fisher, Lewis Hancox, project manager Owl and some special guests.
There will be a stall with clothing, patches and stickers to help raise funds for future My Genderation content.
At the event, we invite you to share stories of how My Genderation films have helped or inspired you over the years.
About My Genderation:
My Generation was started in 2012 by Fox and Lewis Hancox after taking part in the mainstream documentary series My Transsexual Summer on Channel 4. Following on from the series, Fox felt there was a real lack of authentic representation of trans people in film, and set out to capture stories about the people around them.
My Genderation is a non-profit film project that celebrates intersectional trans lives and experiences. All of My Genderation’s content is created by trans people, about trans people, for a much wider audience — currently run by Fox Fisher and Ugla Stefanía Kristjönudóttir Jónsdóttir (Owl)
Now 10 years on, My Genderation has over 100 short films, some broadcast on the BBC and C4, as well as being screened all around the world at film festivals.
- Film festivals awards: Outfest, BFI Flare, Toronto International, TranScreen, Seattle Translations, Trans Film Fest, MIX Copenhagen, New York International, San Francisco Frameline etc
- Films shown at Pulse 10 year Remembrance event, at Museum of Transology, Museum of Brighton & Hove, People’s Museum in Manchester, used in Caitlin Jenner’s coming out and catchup film for 20/20 and in education all over the UK and beyond.
