Catalyst Film Festival: Call for Submissions by Trans Filmmakers

WHAT: Catalyst Film Festival: Call for Submissions by Trans Filmmakers
WHEN: Deadline to Submit Thursday July 20, 2023


Catalyst Film Festival showcases short films and video art by trans filmmakers. We will be having online screenings as well as several in-person screenings in New England starting this August 2023 for our first summer.

We want to bring these films into our tiny hometowns in rural New England, and to create more opportunities for community amongst trans artists. To do this, we plan to tour with multiple screenings in Vermont, Massachusetts, and other states. Additionally, we will make the films available for viewing online for the duration of our tour.

Catalyst is an entirely trans-run festival, and submissions are judged by a team of trans judges.

Screening locations are TBA.
