DocDays x Queerbee: Transworld (shorts)

There are transgender people all around the world and each location has its own challenges and opportunities.

Welcome to a screening of eight short films about life, dating, milonga and names we preferred to be called.

QueerBee is a brand new platform for LGBTQI shorts, established to help queer filmmakers bring authentic queer stories directly to new audiences.

At QueerBee we believe short film is a genre, short film makers are not only on a journey to another place. As a minority group - collectively LGBTIQ+ - the representation of ourselves in mainstream viewing is less than representative.

In addition to this sorry state of affairs, our characters and storylines - where they exist at all – often perpetuate the mainstream stereotypes at the expense of more authentic voices.

Queer shorts provide an excellent means of connecting with one another, validating our lived experiences, helping to change attitudes, improve confidence in individuals and our communities, and break down barriers.

QueerBee is an LGBTQI Community Interest Company registered with Social Enterprise UK (9851) and Cinema For All. A share of the profits is directed back into queer filmmaking and for hard-to-reach queer audiences.
