It is a sad season for us, a very small team of dedicated volunteers who have nurtured Trans Stellar from idea to reality over the last 6 years. It takes more than a couple of people to make a film festival work and we no longer have sufficient capacity to keep going.
Over the years we have worked year-round to bring you access to beautiful queer stories from all over the world. We have worked to make queer film accessible physically, financially, and remotely to all. We are so proud of the work we've done. From year one, we have envisioned a world where queer artists are integrated into the film industry with equal, fair representation and a voice proportionate to our place in society. Our vision is not yet a reality, but we look to the future with hope.
I leave you with the paraphrased wisdom of ancient Jewish sages : We are not obligated to finish the work (of perfecting the world), yet we are also not free to ignore it.
Goodbye with Solidarity and love.
